Snow Removal -Private Lanes

Re: Snow removal from Private Lanes
To our Valued Residents:
The Municipality can certainly appreciate that residents want to dispose of snow from their laneways and property as efficiently and quickly as possible.
Unfortunately, there are reports of snow from private lanes/properties being pushed onto the sides of municipal road allowances. When the snow-piles are left on the sides of roads, traffic has been unnecessarily reduced to one lane and in extreme conditions the snow has drifted completely across the road making it impassable and dangerous for traffic. In addition, gravel has been un-necessarily removed from the road surfaces when these improper snow removal practices take place.
Therefore we insist that snow from private laneways/properties be kept on the originating property and not pushed onto Municipal Road allowances or public streets. Failure to comply with this request will result in the removal of the snow piles at the expense of the property owners where the snow originated from. These costs will be added to the taxes of the property owners if not paid in full.
Should you have any questions or concerns pertaining to this or other municipal matters, please contact the municipal office (306-692-3446) or your Division Councillor.
