Fredericton Road & River Road will not be resurfaced in 2018

Salisbury Village Council has learned that its request to the New Brunswick Department of Transportation and Infrastructure (NBDTI) to resurface Route 112 through the Village (both Fredericton Road and River Road) has been denied, despite a very positive meeting with the department to discuss this request last fall.
 
Village Council is extremely disappointed with this decision by NBDTI, given the fact that the municipality was prepared to invest 10 per cent of total project costs in order to ensure that this important resurfacing work be completed.
 
The Province of New Brunswick directs funding for capital improvements to NB Route 112 (Fredericton Road and River Road) and NB Route 106 (Main Street) under the Provincially Designated Highways program. When it comes to these important primary routes through the Village, the responsibility for summer and winter maintenance, whether it be patching pot-holes or snow-removal, lies with NBDTI.
 
In the meantime, the Village has inquired as to what level of maintenance can be expected on these Provincial routes through the Village in the immediate future.
 
Any concerns from the public regarding the condition of Fredericton Road, River Road, and Main Street can be passed along to the office of the MLA for Albert as, once again, they fall under provincial jurisdiction.

Salisbury Approves New Fire By-Law

Salisbury Village Council has approved a new Fire By-Law (details). It follows the direction of Provincial burning advisories/bans. The By-Law also outlines exactly what items can be burned and in what way; ie. in approved appliances only (open fires in the municipality are PROHIBITED). Salisbury Fire Rescue reserves the right to order any fires that are not in compliance to be extinguished, and are authorized to issue tickets as they may deem necessary to enforce this By-Law.
