Road Use Agreements

Purpose
In order to accommodate industrial and commercial road users in our municipality, while at the same time protecting our road infrastructure, the council for Municipal District of Bonnyville Number 87 has implemented policies concerning road bans and road maintenance agreements.

The purpose is to provide industrial and commercial road users with a guide to Municipal District of Bonnyville's current policy to ensure that the requirements for use of the municipal road network are fully understood.
