Road Closure Policy
Whereas the death of a tow truck driver due to road conditions was reported in spring 2017; and
Whereas the RCMP have asked that municipalities support their ability to close roads when they feel it is unsafe to travel on them; and
Whereas Manitoba has a road closure policy that allows RCMP to close roads;
Therefore be it resolved that the Saskatchewan Urban Municipalities Association advocate the provincial Ministry of Highways and Infrastructure to change road closure regulations to allow RCMP to close highways in the case of unsafe conditions.
