Important Information: Winter Weather Conditions

Snow Plowing:

Snow plow crew are on call 24 hrs. Once snow fall commences, trucks are dispatched as needed. Plowing will continue throughout the day and night as needed.

The Municipality clears public roads from snow and ice according to a road maintenance priority plan: all main roads/bus routes are cleared first, followed by secondary roads after the snow fall has ceased. Tertiary roads are cleared after the snow event and all other main and secondary roads are passable. The Municipality does not clear private or strata roads.

Please note that cars left and/or parked at the sides of roads, cul-de-sacs, etc., make it very difficult for snow plows to effectively clear the area and result in roads being left uncleared and/or unsalted. The trucks require adequate room to maneuver. If possible, please do not park your vehicle at the sides of roads.

Public Works will make every effort to keep the roads clear, salted and sanded throughout the impending storm and thank you in advance for your patience and cooperation.

Sidewalk Snow Removal:

Please note that business owners are responsible for the removal of snow from sidewalks/entrances.

Garbage Pick-up:

Garbage and Organic pick-up is contracted through Bowen Waste. Pick-up may be intermittent due to the road conditions. If you live at the end of a private drive or a road that has not been cleared, please bring your bins down to the nearest clear road for pick-up.
