FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. – When it comes to clearing snow off the streets, business is as usual for the City of Fort St. John.

Last week, the City laid off 88 employees due to the affects of COVID-19, but Communications Coordinator, Ryan Harvey, says those layoffs were in the Community Services Division covering facilities and recreation and did not affect public works or snow clearing operations.

According to Harvey, with over a foot of snow in the past few days, and significant wind, crews have been busy clearing main and collector streets as quickly as possible.
