Winter Control Activities –  March 16, 2017

With the high winds yesterday, we had our loader working throughout last night to clear the primary and country roads.

Crews have been out since 4 a.m. today to clear our 8 routes one last time.

We have cleaned the downtown area and are currently clearing City owned sidewalks and the downtown intersection windrows.

We will start our sanding operation as plows finish. The sunny weather conditions today will help with sanding operations as the day goes on.
     
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.
