Clarification on Road Use Agreement Permits

Please be advised that the purpose of the Road Use Agreement Bylaw, is to protect municipality roads, now and in the future.

While operating a commercial vehicle, in the Town of Fox Creek, we require the following permits only if applicable:

  1. Over-weight and over dimensional permits can be purchased on TRAVIS or through the Town. The cost for an over-dimensional permit is $35.
  1. Tri-drive and Tri-axel carriers (TAC) permits are required if your axle groups exceed 17,000kgs.The cost for a TAC/Tri-drive permit is $100 for 1-10 units, annually and allows operators the same legal weights as the province.
  1. Transportation of Dangerous Goods permits are applicable if you are transporting dangerous goods through Town. The cost for TDG permit is $100.00 for the entire fleet, annually.

For example: A municipal permit for ten tri-axle truck/trailer units is $100.00 annually, less than an average hotel room in Fox Creek.

All permits may be purchased in person, or by phone, at the Town Office or through TRAVIS.

      Hello StephaneHache, my(web admin on behalf of Fox Creek) understanding is yes. However, I will confirm with the appropriate office staff tomorrow.

      If you require a provincial permit, you will require a municipal permit.

    So if my tri drive is under 17000 kgs no permit is required? What width of trailer do you call over dimensional?
