Local Government - Public Works
The R.M. of St. Andrews Public Works Department oversees the maintenance operations of the Municipality.
Some of these services include:
Anyone who is installing a new driveway/access to their property must obtain a Culvert Permit (Private Approach Permit) from the Municipal Office. The cost of this permit is $100, as well as a $350 damage deposit is required (total of $450). The Municipal Office will provide the individual with the size of culvert required. The individual must then purchase and install the culvert themselves. Only galvanized steel culverts are allowed (no plastic culverts). Once the culvert is placed in the ditch and pegged so it will not move, you must contact the Municipal Office to arrange a time that our Public Works Department can come out and do an inspection to ensure the culvert is at the appropriate height and is installed correctly. Please try and allow one day's notice. After the culvert has been inspected, it can then be covered and then one more final inspection will take place. If there are no damages to the culvert or road, then the $350 damage deposit will be refunded. Click here to view the Private Approach (Culvert) By-Law for more information.

Snow Removal & Ice Maintenance on Municipal Roadways
The R.M. of St. Andrews provides regular snow and ice maintenance on all all-weather roadways. In the event of a major snowfall, roads will be cleared as soon as possible, or once the snow has stopped accumulating. The Municipality will work overtime and weekends when required, to remove snow from municipal roadways to make roads accessible and safe to all traffic. Our staff will monitor all the roads and sanding trucks will be sent out for ice control throughout the winter. Winter sand will be applied to all intersections and portions of roadways where required. The R.M. completes snow ridging in fields to help prevent snow drifts from accumulating on the roadways.
To ensure your roadway is maintained efficiently, please adhere to the following requirements:
Thank you for your cooperation in making our winters safe ones. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact the Municipal Office at (204) 738-2264 or e-mail email@example.com.
