Counties committed to repair

WINCHESTER – Drivers along Main Street in the village have had a similar complaint for a few years now: the sunken sewer grates.

A cause for concern since the roadway was rehabilitated in 2015, five of seven are set to be “looked after” at some point this summer.

This is according to Mayor Tony Fraser, who also has a seat as a county councillor at the SD&G level.

Because Main Street is technically a county road, its maintenance falls to the SD&G level of governance. The offending sewer grates sit much lower than the rest of the road surface, and sees countless drivers slaloming to avoid them when not faced with oncoming vehicles.

“There is a commitment there to repair them,” Fraser told his fellow North Dundas politicians this month.

The when in the work plan has yet to be determined.
