'Roads Update'

[23 October 2017]


CoKL Letter to FMLA - 15Nov2017

Hi Ron,

After your meeting and conversations with PW Director, Bryan Robinson, I was asked to create Cases for the concerns outlined in your letter. I will list the case numbers and a brief description/status update below.

From a PW Maintenance perspective, and assigned to Burnt River supervisor, James Turnbull:

Case 83565 – Lakeside Drive – your concerns were outlined and ongoing maintenance will be undertaken. This section was recently identified as having deteriorated beyond our ability to maintain adequately and our Engineering dept was contacted to work with PW operations to develop a plan to resolve this concern.

Case 83568 – Hugill Hill – area supervisor and manager met with someone from Weldon Dr to discuss this concern. They developed a plan to improve drainage and I believe that ditching was completed this week. This should help keep potholes from redeveloping at such a rapid rate.

Case 83570 – Ledge Hill Rd – has also been identified as having a section that has failed badly and Engineering resources have been requested for collaborative resolution.

Case 83571 – Northline Rd – your concerns have been logged for ongoing maintenance and a separate case number 83584 has been created and assigned to Engineering with a request to consider escalation of this section of road in the 5 year planning process.

If I can be of any further assistance please feel free to contact me. Operational concerns can also be addressed to me.

FMLA Letter to CoKL Public Works - 31Oct2017

-dload 4Mile Roads Inventory-North End
-dload 4Mile Roads Inventory-South End

[Reprinted from "The FourMiler" - November 2017]

You don’t have to drive very far around the lake to notice the condition of many of our City ‘Assumed’ roads. The FMLA is currently doing a quick inventory of Assumed road conditions and will be putting pressure on the City to make the necessary repairs on your behalf.

Many residents will not be aware that the City has issued a new road Policy called Seasonal Level of Service Policy’. A copy of the policy is now on our website. This new policy replaces the previous LSA’s on Un-Assumed roads and may a.ect the level of service you receive. The new Policy (Un-Assumed Roads Only) calls for gravel only as necessary, grading 2x per year and no winter services. If your road Association hires contractors or chooses to do the work yourselves there is a requirement for $3 million in liability insurance and you need a permit. Private roads are the same as before with no services, but the City will not be considering any new private roads to become Un-Assumed.

The biggest issue here is we don’t necessarily understand what roads, by title, are really Un-Assumed vs Private. Many people think they know what their road is, but what is on title may be di.erent. Your Association will be performing a records search for every road around the lake to determine who has title. Once this is completed we will publish a list so residents can understand what services they will, or will not, receive. For Rustic Trail, there has been a long standing issue and the City may be willing to o.er services to the section of road on the Lewis property to the bend under certain conditions.
