Wards 1 and 2 Regional Councillor Clark Somerville motioned at a recent council meeting to request the federal government enshrine in legislation the gas tax revenue deal with the municipalities. Halton Hills will be receiving close to $4 million over the five years of the federal gas tax revenue deal. Council also passed a resolution that $1 million of that revenue over the next three years goes to hard-surfacing gravel roads. "When we were doing the budgeting this year we could see what an impact that is having," he said. "Roads that were not even on the radar to be done are suddenly starting to appear as ones we can work in as capital projects."
