Snow Disposal

The Municipality DOES NOT operate a night time sanding or plowing shift of personnel. Except for patrol trucks, sanders and snowplows will generally not operate between 3:30 p.m. and the route call-out time for the next day (normally 3:00 a.m., from Monday through Sunday).

It takes approximately 6 - 8 hours to plow the entire Municipality and approximately 9 hours to spot sand the entire Municipality once the plowing is completed

Sidewalk clearing takes approximately 9-10 hours

*times can vary depending on weather conditions


Pedestrian walkways are not maintained in the winter.


Sidewalks are cleared by Municipal crews, in priority sequence.

Hauling of Snow

Occasionally hauling from the downtown core is done during overnight hours, usually beginning at midnight to have minimal interference with businesses and traffic downtown.

Unfortunately, due to the size of machinery required to plow and haul snow this can result in some noise early in the morning while we are working hard to make the roadways safe.

Please have patience and try to understand that this happens early in the morning when traffic is at its lowest and therefore the safest time of day for us to begin.
