As a resident of the service area:
- Know your property corners. On one side of the marker is your property. The other side is the public road right-of-way.
- Do not plant trees, or install anything else that will interfere with road maintenance in the right-of-way. Do not push snow onto the right-of-way, across the street or into the street.
- If you modify your driveway or have to replace utilities by digging into the right-of-way, contact the Rural Services Division about permit requirements: the permit cost is double if purchased post construction.
- Keep your driveway culvert clear for spring runoff.
- To avoid making ruts on a wet gravel road, try not to drive in the same wheel path as the previous drivers.
- For gravel roads, the faster you drive, the more dust is created. The dust is the fine binding material that keeps the gravel in place.
- Stay informed: find out who your commissioners are, and attend service area meetings when possible.
