The RM of Turtle River No. 469 has passed a bylaw regarding gravel extrication, meaning that a license is required for anyone removing gravel within the Municipality.
The Bylaw states:
- No contractor shall operate or offer for hire any machine, tractor, truck or other appliance used in excavation of gravel from any premise within the municipality without having first obtained a license to do so from the municipality in the form of Schedule “a” attached hereto.
A contractor is defined as any person, firm or corporation, including those persons, firms or corporations engaged by the crown, but does not include the crown.
In addition to the license required, the contractor must also pay a fee to the municipality for all the gravel excavated from the premise in the form of Schedule “b”.
