Winter Road Maintenance
Posted On: November 24th, 2022

Winter is here!

If there is a snowfall and you have a vehicle parked on the roadway, please remove it as soon as possible. If it is not moved the vehicle may be ploughed in or subject to towing. It is the owner’s responsibility to shovel it out.

Before the first snow falls, any obstructions to the plow trucks placed on public right of ways such as rocks, fences, markers, rebar, flags, or planters should be removed immediately.

Objects on the public right-of-way may be destroyed by snowplow operations or they can do substantial damage to plow equipment. Owners of such obstructions may be at risk if equipment is unnecessarily damaged. Public works may find it necessary to remove obstructions to plow trucks. The public right-of-way may typically extend from two to three meters from the edge of blacktop and is essential for the storage of snow between snow events.

Winter operations require large, heavy equipment. Our snow contractors make every effort to minimize the amount of snow that gets plowed into driveways. However, it is almost inevitable that this will occur. Homeowners are responsible for removal of berms across their driveways. DO NOT PUSH THE SNOW BACK ONTO THE ROAD PLEASE.

Placing snow on public spaces in a manner that impedes pedestrian or vehicle traffic is unsafe and can cause accidents.

We appreciate your consideration and cooperation throughout the winter season.
