Consider clearing a neighbour’s sidewalks when you do your own.
Clearing snow and ice from sidewalks can be a difficult task for our senior residents, or those with limited mobility. You can be a good neighbour and lend a helping hand to neighbours that may need assistance clearing snow and ice from sidewalks.
Your efforts will help create a safer community for everyone, be great exercise and will help people meet their responsibility, as per City Bylaw, to remove ice and snow from their sidewalks by 10:00 a.m.
Other tips during SnowfallResidents are also being asked to keep parked cars off roads whenever possible during snow storms and to avoid shovelling snow back onto the roads.
Please help us by clearing any drains adjacent to your property, especially during melting conditions. Blocked catch basins may result in excess water along the road area, which can become dangerous if it subsequently freezes. Blocked catch basins may result in flooding of adjacent properties depending on the extent of the blockage and the amount of melting snow.
