Strathcona County residents will need to move their vehicles while crews remove snow from streets.
Residential snow removal will start at 6 a.m. on Tuesday (Feb.27).
"Although we have not met the critieria of 7cm of compacted snow on residential streets, we're concerned with respect to the warming temeratures that we usually see in March," said director of transportation and agriculture services David Churchill. "Our policy is very driven on making sure our residents can get around, as well as our emergency services to get to calls they need to get to, so we decided to initiate a residential snow clearing."
Large orange signs will be placed on streets 24 hours prior to any snow removal and will include dates for parking restrictions. Once crews complete the job, residents can park on the streets again.
Take note that vehicles parked on a road during cleanup will be towed and owners will receive a $250 ticket.
The County asks people to also remove rubber mats, grates and other materials at the edge of their driveways.
If it is waste collection day, put your bins at the end of the driveway instead of on the road or sidewalk during the snow removal process.
The whole process will be completed in 12 days (Mar.10)
