Snow Removal

Snow Removal Updates

On January 25, 2021 at a Regular Council Meeting, the 2021 Snow Removal Strategy was approved. Included in this updated policy were a number of changes: removing "Zero Tolerance" to "Accumulation of 2.5 Centimetres of Snow", as well as eliminating some streets and sidewalks. 

Please review the following sections to learn more about the changes in the adopted snow removal policy. 

Roads

Location

Change

Reason

All All Rename “Zero Tolerance” to “No Accumulation Greater Than 2.5cm”

The Town's present equipment cannot effectively remove snow less than 2.5cm deep in accumulation. 

Efforts to do so are inefficient and add equipment run time without appreciable benefit.
