Cranbrook residents will have the opportunity to hear a presentation on the state of the city’s infrastructure, including roads, next week.

At the Monday, November 19 council meeting at city hall, engineer Jamie Hodge will give a State of Infrastructure presentation to mayor and council.

The session will look at roads, water and sewage infrastructure that the city owns. Hodge will give in-depth analysis of what the city owns, what condition it’s in, the remaining average service life, its current value and, importantly, the required costs to bring the infrastructure up to a reasonable condition.

Hodge will also present a plan to help begin dealing with the issues.

Corporate communications officer Chris Zettel will also give a presentation on infrastructure work the city has undergone this year.

The meeting will be held at 6 p.m. on Monday, November 19 in council chambers.
