Another 5.25 km of roads will be paved in Schanzenfeld this summer as part of the R.M of Stanley's village paving program.

"This will help bring the village up to where it is supposed to be," said Reeve Morris Olafson.

Thursday council approved a borrowing by-law to help cover the costs of the $1,082,000 project.

Olafson said after the public consultation they received around 92% support to move forward with the project, which Olafson said is reassuring that they're on the right path.

The cost-sharing project will affect 155 properties. Each landowner will be responsible for covering $4,000 and have the option to pay upfront or spread out the cost in their property taxes for the next 10 years.

The RM of Stanley released the project's sources of funding:

- Local Improvement Tax: $620,000
- Provincial Road Grant: $187,000
- Federal Gas Tax: $275,000

CAO Dale Toews says the file has been sent to the Municipal Board to approve the borrowing, anticipating approval in late March or early April, with construction taking place in summer 2018.

This is year four of the R.M of Stanley’s village pavement program.
