Responsibility for public and private roads
The Municipality of the Township of Potton is responsible for maintaining streets and roads it owns. The Municipality does not, except under exceptional circumstances, undertake any work on private property.
That being said, the municipality does not undertake any repair work on private roads in Potton and has no obligation to do so. It is the responsibility of the owner(s) of the private road to take the necessary measures to maintain it at their own expense; whether it be the actual road, culvert or any other work of this nature.
