Pothole Repair
 
The Town believes that it is in the best interest of the residents to conduct pothole repair on Town-owned streets.  The Town conducts inspections on Town-owned streets for potholes.  They are generally fixed as soon as possible.  Pothole repair usually begins in the spring once the snow has melted.  However, if deemed necessary, a temporary repair can be used during the winter using a cold asphalt mix.  In warmer weather a hot asphalt mix or a cold permanent mix can be used to fix the pothole. 

Pathway Maintenance
 
The pathways in the Town of Three Hills enhance fitness, health and general life enjoyment.  All pathways are inspected and maintenance is conducted as required.
