Snow removal

The Town's Operations Centre staff are responsible for snow removal from all municipal roads and sidewalks.


Parking issues are handled by by-law enforcement

On-street parking is suspended during snowstorms until the local roads are cleared.  Residents are asked to remove parked vehicles from the street during or after each snowfall, this allows the Town to properly clear the snow from the entire road surface.  Vehicles parked on-street during a snowfall and prior to clean up operations may be subject to ticketing or towing.  Vehicles towed may be moved or taken and placed or stored in a suitable place with all costs and charges for removing, care and storage, if any, are a lien upon the vehicle.  Please give our crews 24 hours after the storm has ended to complete snow clearing.


The Town is responsible for maintenance of the streetlights and poles. To report a streetlight not operating, please visit our Report an Issue

Sports equipment on Town roads

The Town does not encourage sports and game equipment, such as hockey/basketball nets and skateboard ramps on municipal roads and road allowances. These objects can potentially lead to vehicular and/or pedestrian incidents or accidents.

To reduce the chance of an incident occurring, we request that any unattended nets and ramps be placed on your private property.

Winter Season 

From Nov. 1 to May 1, all sporting equipment must be removed from the roads and boulevards.

The Town is not responsible for any damages to equipment not removed from the municipal roads.
