Several residents from the 900 block of Henry Street attended Monday’s regular council meeting, requesting council approve a complete infrastructure replacement on the street, rather than patchwork repairs that residents do not consider to be a long-term solution to the problem
“We feel that the waterline is a problem due to the age of it,” said spokesman for the residents Glen Heck. “The sewer is likely in the same situation. Total infrastructure change would be money well spent.
“We have witnessed sewer and asphalt replacement on the 1000 block of Henry Street, only to see the patchwork repairs having to be repeated as the job was not addressed properly or completely the first time.
“We do not want the same circumstances, and a complete update of infrastructure for the 900 block of Henry Street would make a good pilot project for the City of Moose Jaw.”
During his presentation to council, Heck said residents would like the sewer and water lateral replacements to be done with new technology of sub terrain lateral replacement as required, understanding there is a normal, individual homeowner cost involved in replacement of lateral work.
In total, 32 residents from the 900 block of Henry Street signed a memorandum requesting the infrastructure update.
