Winter Maintenance of Municipal Roadways


Winter Maintenance of Municipal Roadways



Parking and Snow Removal

Residents are reminded that Section 170 (12) of The Highway Traffic Act prohibits the parking or standing of vehicles on any roadway in such a manner as to interfere with the clearing of snow from the roadway.

Any vehicle parked or standing in such a manner as to interfere with municipal snow clearing operations may be ticketed or towed away.

Vehicles towed may be moved or taken, and placed or stored in a suitable place, and all costs and charges for removing, care and storage thereof, if any, are a lien upon the vehicle.

Depositing of Snow on Roadway

Residents are also reminded that Section 181 of The Highway Traffic Act prohibits any person from depositing snow or ice on a roadway.

Please co-operate with the Town’s Public Works Department by keeping your vehicle off the street when it appears that snow clearing will be done, and by refraining from depositing snow and ice on the roadway.

Your co-operation in helping the Public Works Department keep our maintenance operations efficient and our roadways safe this winter is greatly appreciated.
