Residents in Brandon's west end are reportedly unhappy with chip-sealing maintenance on their roads from last summer, and the city has promised to look into it.
Coun. Murray Blight, who represents the far-west end Victoria ward in Brandon, said at last week's city council meeting that his constituents weren't pleased with the chip sealing program that had been done last year and asked if there was to be a review.
Patrick Pulak, the city's engineering director, said in a response posted to the city's website this week that the chip seal has a one-year warranty, and pledged to examine the area in the near future.
Chip sealing is a process that mixes a thin layer of hot asphalt with gravel to economically extend the useful life of a road.
