Burnside Bridge By-Law

Burnside Bridge By-Law

In 2011 the Burnside Bridge was damaged beyond repair by flood waters.

In 2014 the Council of the day agreed to replace the bridge using Disaster Relief Assistance.  However at that time the council decided to better the bridge by increasing the its load capacity.  As this was considered to be an improvement, this cost of $300,000.00 was not covered by Disaster Relief Assistance.  A public Hearing was held and a borrowing was approved by the Provincial Government.

This is a Rural borrowing, so everyone with a rural assessment will be assessed the levy.
