Winter will soon enough be upon us and the Public Works Department would like to remind everyone that you can do your bit to help.
When it comes to ploughing roads, it is essential that everyone follow the winter parking restrictions. No parking is allowed on any Town road between the hours of 2:00 a.m. and 6:00 a.m. starting November 15th and running until April 15th.
The following will also go a long way to ensuring roads and sidewalks are safely and efficiently ploughed.
- Keeping sidewalks clear of landscape objects & debris and the adjoining area (0.45m either side)
- Ensure that garbage cans are well setback from the road
- Residents are responsible to clear their own driveway entrance
- Do not shovel, blow or plough snow onto roads & sidewalks
- Pile snow downstream of plough direction
- Maintain visibility by not creating large piles of snow at the end of your driveway
- Utilize your entire front yard for snow storage
- Sump pumps must discharge onto private property (1.8 metres from foundation wall is recommended). Do Not Discharge onto sidewalks or roadway
- After every winter, please take a good look at your mailbox and post to check for stability. The Town is not responsible for mail (a federal responsibility). If snow dislodges your box and post, it is your responsibility to repair.
If you are aware of a road hazard, please notify us at 519.941.3599, extension 225, during office hours (Monday - Friday, 8:30 a.m. - 4:30 p.m.).
After office hours, please call 519.939.2480 and leave a message (time, date and nature of the hazard).
