Snow clearing on the town’s residential streets is underway after several storms dumped more than 55 cm. of snow in the past month.

Residents are asked to watch for ‘no parking’ signs which will placed a minimum of 24 hours in advance of clearing operations and are valid for 72 hours, said Joanne Gaudet, the town’s communications officer. “Municipal Enforcement will remove unlawfully parked vehicles at the owner’s expense.”

The program is expected to take two or three weeks and may take longer if more snowfall requires crews to return to arterial and residential collector routes.

All streets will be cleared and sanded, including closes and cul-de-sacs, said Gaudet in a media release. Any snow piles and windrows left in the middle of the road or piled at the centre of closes or cul-de-sacs will be removed, typically within 72 hours.

“Please keep children away from equipment or snow piles.”

If you have questions or concerns please contact public works staff at 403-887-2800. If your vehicle has been towed contact Municipal Enforcement at 403-858-7282.
