Snow removal

Advance warning of snow removal and the times at which it will be taking place are given by flashing or fixed lights on major thoroughfares and by special notices placed on side streets.

westmount no parking

Highly visible and effective, the plastic signs are attached to existing signage using special hooks. Westmount personnel will install the signs at least 12 hours before snow removal begins, giving drivers ample time to move their parked vehicles before snow removal operations get underway.

Please check your street daily before 7 a.m. following any heavy snowfall, as vehicles blocking snow removal operations will be towed.

The plastic signs replace orange sandwich boards in most areas of the Westmount, which were typically placed on snowbanks when snow removal was to take place.

Westmount depends on the cooperation of all drivers in the city to ensure that snow is removed quickly and efficiently throughout the winter. The next time it snows, look up and check carefully for orange signs. Vehicles blocking snow removal operations will be towed.

Street cleaning

Street cleaning occurs on a fixed schedule and parking is not permitted during the designated periods, which are clearly posted.

Check parking signs carefully, as these restrictions are strictly enforced.
