Environment Canada has issued a Winter Storm Warning. This is in effect from Thursday evening, February 3 until Saturday morning, February 5. For details, visit here.

Crews are prepared

The snow control contractor is prepared for the storm and all equipment is operational and ready. Please do not distract snow control equipment operators while they are in the process of hazardous work that requires their full attention.

Town Works Department crews are also prepared. Residents are advised that sidewalks will not be serviced until after the storm to allow crews to focus their full attention on widening roads and maintaining cleared access to Town facilities, such as fire stations.

How residents can help

Residents are encouraged to avoid non-essential travel until after the storm. Despite all preparations and efforts, storms of this level will always result in difficult and dangerous driving conditions.

Children should be reminded not to play on snowbanks or near the roadways.
