Snow removal from municipal roads is done in the following order of priority:
- Primary Grid roads (641 & 642);
- School bus routes;
- Grid roads;
- Industrial area.
We try and have all roads cleared within two days of a storm. Road crews work only when it is safe to do so, usually once the weather has cleared. The municipality does not have the resources to provide snow removal on privately owned property.
As per Bylaw No. 13-2013, the practice of plowing snow onto or across municipal right-of-ways is not a permitted practice. This can cause a serious safety issue for motorists and result in potential liability costs for the party who placed the materials on a municipal right-of-way. Individuals in contravention will have the snow removed from the roadway by municipal crews and all expenses incurred shall be borne solely by the responsible party.
