Snow Plowing Policy

Agreement for Snow Removal 2017-2018

Council wishes to make ratepayers aware of the safety issues and consequences of pushing snow from a driveway on to the municipal road or shoulder. Piles of snow left on or near the road can freeze into a solid mass creating a hazardous situation for vehicles and snowplows.  It also could increase the chance of drifting on to the roadway.

This hazard on a municipal road exposes those that use the road (residents, equipment operators etc.) to the risk of serious bodily injury and poses the risk of liability for the resulting damages to the party who pushed the snow on the road. Anyone who pushes snow on to a municipal road can also be liable for the costs for the R.M to remedy the damage done and can be fined under The Highways and Transportation Act, 1997.

Council appreciates your co-operation to keep our roads safe for all residents and R.M. staff.
