SnowPORTant Update (Jan. 22)

The snow may not have been falling today, but crews have been busy keeping our streets and sidewalks clear and safe.

Today we had four sanders deployed, one on the west side of the city, one on the east side of the city, and two in the country. We also had two loaders spot plowing, one in the city and one in the country.

Staff also cleared sidewalk and storm sewer grates, applying sand where needed.

These efforts are also in preparation for the special weather statement that has been issued for tonight into tomorrow, Wednesday, Jan. 23, with snow and freezing rain in the forecast. A band of snow is set to move through the Region bringing 2 to 5 cm. The snow will then change over to a period of freezing rain. The freezing rain may last several hours before changing over to rain overnight or early Wednesday morning.

Staff will be monitoring throughout the night with crew members deploying at 4 a.m. and 6 a.m. in preparation for the morning commute. A decision will be made at that time if additional resources are required.

In preparation for tonight's weather and snow removal activities, residents are reminded not to park vehicles on roadways. If your vehicle is parked illegally you will be issued a $75 ticket along with a purple tow notice.
