A McBride resident has presented council with the request to improve and add to the existing boarded walkways.

Loranne Martin, mayor of McBride, says it’s not uncommon for residents to come forward in regards to sidewalks, or ideas to make the Village a more mobility-friendly community.

“Budget deliberations on sidewalks occur, and we do address liability concerns as opposed to upgrading or creating new sidewalks,” says Martin.

McBride’s department of public works is now estimating cost, and reviewing if repairs are feasible over the summer.
