Sinking manholes on local & regional roads
The Region of Peel is responsible for the maintenance of the following roads in wards 3 & 4:
- Dixie Road
- Queen St. / Embleton Rd.
- Steeles Ave.
- Kennedy Rd.
- Mavis Rd.
- Main Street/Queen St. East - Porterfield Road
- The Region of Peel doesn't have an online tool to report the potholes & cracks that they can' t keep up with on regional roads
- The City of Brampton on the other hand does for the local roads it's responsible to maintain but much like the Region can't keep up with the failing infrastruture
- I will put forward a discussion item and request staff look creating ONE reporting channel for residents to report maintenance issues on Brampton's roads & start a task force to maintain the roads we have before building any new ones

Lets try this:
- Invest in a patching/ pothole machine (cost as low as $300k) that requires just one person to operate rather than 3-5 guys trying to patch one hole
- Solution recommended from a Sudbury resident
- A Less Bumpy Road with Wavin Corrugated Shaft Pipes
Winter road maintenance
April 2018 - Four days after snowfall sidewalks were never cleared on Harold St.
Recommend staff investigate possible enhancements to the current contract when it expires:
- Shorter contract term (3 years or less)
- Seasonality should reflect November 1 - April 30
- Not end of March like Joe Pitushka, the city staff in charge of roads states
Plow streets when a single storm results in:
Current: 7.5 cm/ 3 inches
Proposed: 3.75 cm/ 1.5 inches + of snow
Maintain municipal roads and sidewalks within:
- Current: 24 hours
- Proposed: 8 hours after the end of a snowfall
