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.
