Description and Service Details

Description (Service)

Snow Clearing

  • Regional, arterial and collector roads sanded or salted first followed by secondary roads
  • snow clearing beings once 2 cm of snow has accumulated on primary roads
  • plowing on residential streets begins after 10 cm of accumulation 

Designated Sidewalk Routes

  • cleared only after snow accumulates in excess of five cm and roads have been cleared
  • sidewalks associated with schools, transit routes and major pedestrian travel are cleared in priority sequence

How residents can help:

  • remove snow from fire hydrants and drainage catch basins near your property
  • pile snow on the right side of your driveway facing the road when shoveling - this helps minimize the ridge of snow created by the snowplow at the end of your driveway
  • remove plowed snow at the end of your driveway - snowplow operators must push snow to the curb or shoulder, possibly covering recently shoveled driveways
  • decorative items that touch sidewalks and curbs should be flush with the ground and 300 cm (12") from the edge of the curb or sidewalk
  • park vehicles off the street during snow clearing
  • obey parking maximums on town streets between 2 am and 6 am (Parking Bylaw #1984-1)
  • shovel snow onto lawns and not onto the road when clearing driveways and sidewalks (Obstruct Highways By-Law #115-2205)
