Motion To: That the Rules of Procedure be waived, permit Council to consider authorizing necessary repairs to the asphalt overlay to begin as soon as possible, as set out below in the following motion: WHEREAS the 2016-2017 winter season was among the worst in recent memory, with over 310 cm of snow and 70 freeze-thaw cycles over a six-month period; and WHEREAS that number of freeze-thaw cycles generated stress on road pavement, creating ideal conditions for potholes; and WHEREAS the challenging winter season was followed by record rainfalls in May and more cold weather, damaging asphalt repairs that were made over the winter, meaning that there are considerably more potholes and other asphalt damage this year than in a standard year; and WHEREAS staff advises that repairing the winter damage now is necessary to keep the City’s asphalt overlay from deteriorating further; and WHEREAS st
