Council undertakes an annual program of re-sheeting and grading for gravel roads, re-sealing and line marking for sealed roads, and roadside slashing. Roadside slashing maintains line of sight, and visibility of guideposts and road signs. Certain roads are identified in the Municipal Fire Prevention Plan as fuel reduction corridors where fuel loads are reduced by roadside slashing or herbicide spraying.
