Winter Control Activities – December 6, 2018
Light snow thru the night brought out 2 trucks that were out since 4am this morning sanding all priorities.
As snow intensified this morning all priority routes will be sanded again with trucks moving into secondaries once they have been completed.
We will continue to monitor weather conditions as we progress thru the day.
Residents are reminded that during winter weather conditions, pushing or blowing snow and ice onto or across public roadways creates an unsafe situation for drivers. Residents can assist in the efficiency of the operation by not parking vehicles on roadways during winter control activities
Section 181, Highway Traffic Act - "No person shall deposit snow or ice on a roadway without permission in writing to do so from the Ministry or the road authority responsible for the maintenance of the road"
If you notice poor or dangerous street conditions, please forward this to our staff at the City Works Yard at (905) 835-5079 and your concerns will be dealt with as soon as possible.
Your Cooperation is greatly appreciated.
