Charlottetown’s ditch-infilling program may be coming to an end.
In May, the public works committee recommended the program be discontinued and, since then, the environment and sustainability department, has completed its own review and came to the same conclusion.
The manager of public works says, going forward, the city should only infill ditches for safety or operational needs. Residents will still have the option to infill their lot frontage at their own expense with the approval of the public works manager.
Right now, the city is waiting for a recommendation from the environmental and sustainability committee. The issue will then be forwarded to a special meeting of council for review.
