The biggest problem is the City’s snow dump. Normally before the snowfalls in large amounts, the ground is frozen. This year, the ground isn’t frozen so trucks hauling away the snow are getting stuck when trying to dump the snow. That’s why it may take more time for the City to remove the windrows from streets like 100th street and 100th avenue.
Crews are also working to clear sidewalks in the community, but residents and property owners are reminded it is there responsibility to clean the sidewalk in front of their property. The City will focus on cleaning sidewalks in the downtown core and near schools.
If you need more information about the City’s snow clearing procedures, contact City Hall at 311.
