October 15 to April 15
The Municipality is committed to keeping its roads and sidewalks safe for vehicles and pedestrians during the winter months, in accordance with the Minimum Maintenance Standards for Municipal Highways and the Municipality's Winter Control Handbook.
The Public Works Department works diligently to clear snow and ice quickly from the roadways; however, roads may become snow-covered during certain hours and under certain weather conditions.
Winter Parking Restrictions
Winter parking restrictions are necessary to ensure snow removal operations can be completed safely and effectively. On-street parking is strictly prohibited between the hours of 2:00 a.m. and 7:00 a.m. from November 1 to April 30.
The Municipality's policy on mailbox location, post size, and replacement can be found within By-law 2014-28. The By-law also defines replacement of damaged mailboxes.
It is your responsibility to ensure that your mailbox is visible to all maintenance vehicles, including proper snow removal and brushing.
If you do not use your mailbox during the winter, remove it including the post.
Residential Snow Removal
Residents are reminded that, pursuant to Section 181 of the Highway Traffic Act, no person shall deposit snow or ice on a roadway without permission in writing to do so from the Ministry or road authority responsible for the maintenance of the road.
Plow operators must deposit snow onto or near driveways to maintain the roads. There is no practical way to plow the roads without depositing snow at the end of your driveway.
