Snow removal operations – February 25 to March 2, 2022 – UPDATE

UPDATE – Snow loading operations will stop this Monday, February 28 due to the weather and snow forecast for Tuesday, March 1. Snow loading is expected to resume on Wednesday, March 2 at 3:00 a.m.

When parking your vehicle in the street, please watch for signs indicating parking restrictions and move your vehicle accordingly in advance of the snow loading. Parked vehicles that interfere with snow removal operations will be towed.

Some adjustments in those operations maybe required based on the weather conditions and forecast.

Please note that:

  • throughout the winter, the City WILL NOT PHONE RESIDENTS IN ADVANCE to remind them to move their parked vehicles; and
  • towing teams WILL NO LONGER USE WARNING SIRENS, day or night, to alert residents of imminent loading operations.

Pay attention to parking restrictions and MOVE YOUR VEHICLE before snow removal crews arrive. This makes a significant difference in the speed and efficiency of our loading operations.

Also important, post-snowstorm:

  • Snow from private driveways and walkways may be added to the existing snow banks before their removal, but must never obstruct public sidewalks, lanes or streets. Fines may be levied on homeowners and/or contractors who contravene these regulations.
  • It is the responsibility of property owners to inform their contractors of these rules.
  • On collection days, keep all containers out of the path of street and sidewalk plows.

Your cooperation truly helps us do a better job. Thank you for your patience and understanding during these operations.
