Council met with Alberta Transportation ‘Maintenance Contract Inspector’ Bruce Henderson, to discuss winter road maintenance on Highway 2 between McLennan and Donnelly. Last year, several residents complained to the Town of McLennan, and to address their concerns, meetings were set up between LaPrairie Group and Alberta Transportation. Mr. Henderson indicated to Council that the road maintenance will improve this year and he explained to Council how road maintenance priority is determined. He also discussed the updated 511 app that is available for people to track snow plows and road conditions.
