Description and Service Details
Description (Service) Snow Clearing: 
* Regional, arterial and collector roads sanded or salted first followed by secondary roads 
* snow clearing beings once 2 cm of snow has accumulated on primary roads 
* plowing on residential streets begins after 10 cm of accumulation 
Designated Sidewalk Routes 
* cleared only after snow accumulates in excess of five cm and roads have been cleared 
* sidewalks associated with schools, transit routes and major pedestrian travel are cleared in priority sequence 
How residents can help: 
* remove snow from fire hydrants and drainage catch basins near your property 
* pile snow on the right side of your driveway facing the road when shoveling - this helps minimize the ridge of snow created by the snowplow at the end of your driveway 
* remove plowed snow at the end of your driveway - snowplow operators must push snow to the curb or shoulder, possibly covering recently shoveled driveways 
* decorative items that touch sidewalks and curbs should be flush with the ground and 300 cm (12") from the edge of the curb or sidewalk 
* park vehicles off the street during snow clearing 
* obey parking maximums on town streets between 2 am and 6 am (Parking Bylaw #1984-1) 
* shovel snow onto lawns and not onto the road when clearing driveways and sidewalks (Obstruct Highways By-Law #115-2205)
