Notice of Budget Amendment: Fernhill Culvert Replacement


A report will be brought to Council at their March 1, 2023, meeting seeking approval for a budget amendment for replacement of a culvert along Fernhill Dr. 

On February 10, 2023, staff were alerted to a large pothole on Fernhill Dr. Upon investigation, staff noted a significant sink hole had formed beside a large structural culvert, and that the culvert was significantly deteriorated. 

This culvert had been identified for replacement in 2024 as part of the multi-year roads capital budget. To minimize the road closure on Fernhill Dr. and ensure a timely replacement of the culvert, staff are recommending a budget amendment of $350,000 to be used to fund the replacement of the failed culvert this year.

If approved, funds will be drawn from an existing reserve fund (OCIF). 

The full report on the budget amendment will be available when the March 1, 2023, council agenda is posted.
