Snow Removal Policy
Snow fall season is once again upon us and Council would like to remind property owners about snow removal. It is against Village Policy to clear snow from your yard(s) and add it to the streets, any municipal property or another property that is not owned by you.
We would request that residents be considerate with where your snow is going when clearing, and whenever possible, keep the snow on your property. If you find that this is not possible, please contact the Village office at (306)468-2016 for permitted locations.
Please also note that if utilizing an ATV or UTV to clear snow from driveways or sidewalks, please be very cautious. We appreciate the efforts of residents to use these types of methods to keep sidewalks and driveways cleared, but vehicles such as these tend to leave ridges when clearing and may make the surface uneven resulting in difficulty for municipal equipment to snow blow or clear/remove ridges from that portion of the sidewalk.
If you have any questions or concerns, please contact the office at (306)468-2016.
