Snow Removal

After a major snow fall, the policy of Council has been set as follows:

All major grids are to be done first for emergency vehicles, bus routes next and then all other roads.  Do not expect your driveway to be done immediately after a major snow fall.  The operator will come back to it. Make sure you have an alternative method of snow removal in the event of a major snow fall.  The equipment operators will alternate the areas they begin snow removal each time. A red flag large enough to see at the end of the driveway notifies the operators you want the driveway done.  Custom Work charges will be applied. Anyone that cleans their driveways on their own, caution should be taken when clearing the snow onto the road allowance.  There should be no ridges left or a build up of snow on the edge of the road.   It becomes a liability to the R.M. in the event someone runs into it (liability may fall on the person responsible for the ridge).  It is also extremely hard on the graders and operators as these ridges get very hard.
