With the snowfall received thus far in 2021/22, we were all certainly challenged to finding an “appropriate home” for the excess snow in our lanes and roadways. The Municipality can certainly appreciate that residents want to dispose of snow from their laneways as efficiently and quickly as possible.
Unfortunately, the Municipality is experiencing an increase of the amount of snow from private lanes pushed onto Municipal Road allowances. In several cases, the snow-piles are left on the sides of roads to the point where traffic is down to one lane or worse, whereby the snow has drifted completely across the road making it impassable and dangerous for traffic. Therefore, we ask that snow from private laneways be kept on your existing property and not pushed onto Municipal Road allowances or public streets.
While the Municipality does its best to keep up with the snow removal on our roads, we cannot possibly clear the snow at every location simultaneously. Our many “Thanks” go out to those of you that have taken it upon them-selves to clear the snow when our crews were unable to reach everyone as quickly as possible. In addition, if you have not done so already and are currently removing snow from Municipal roadways, we encourage you to stop by the RM office to complete an “Occupational Health and Safety Exemption” form.
Should you have any questions or concerns, please the Municipal office (306) 692-3446 or email: [email protected]
Thank you for your time and consideration.
