Culvert Permit Application Information (Driveway Installations)
 
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 a final 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 inspection will take place.  If there are no damages to the culvert or road, then the damage deposit of $350 will be refunded.  Cash, cheque or debit are accepted (NOT CREDIT CARDS).  Click here to view the Private Approach (Culvert) By-Law  for more information.
