Winter Control Activities –  December 17, 2016

The following is an update of the City’s Winter Control Activities for today:

Following the arrival of the predicted Colorado low very early this morning, snow plows have been deployed in all eight routes by approximately 5am.  Once all routes have been completed by this afternoon, units will then begin sanding operations throughout.


Weather conditions and predicted changing precipitation will continue to be monitored throughout the day and evening.
          
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.
