Policy on rural road servicing for Timmins will be analyzed by City Council.

This comes after residents on Kenogamissi Hydro Road requested more services, which would cost the city around $1.4-million.

Councillor Walter Wawrzaszek says he would like to see some collaboration between the city, Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry, Hydro One and cottage owners to see if there are grants available to cut down the costs.

Councillor Noella Rinaldo says taking care of rural roads goes against the city’s official plan, which is something council has broken twice in the past. Rinaldo says these conversations cannot be on a per-road basis, but rather look at a whole rural road policy.

More information on this situation will be brought to council at a future meeting.
