Residents will need to prepare to move their vehicles off the streets.
 
Snow clearing began earlier this week in Fort Saskatchewan and is expected to take place over a 10 day period. City crews will work weekdays from 6:30 a.m. to 11 p.m.
 
The city will post signs on the streets they plan to clear at least three days in advance. The signs will say the exact day the street is being cleared.
 
"It make the ability for the city crews to come through and work safely and clear those streets so all of our residents and guests of the city are going to be able to drive safely," said Fort Saskatchewan Municipal Enforcement Services supervisor Matt Lowther.
 
Vehicles that fail to move will be given a $100 ticket and the owner will receive a phone call asking them to remove their vehicle from the street.
 
"We really don't want to inconvenience people by towing their vehicle and as well, there is additional cost to towing vehicles."
 
Once the plows have gone through the area and the roads are clear, residents may park their vehicle on the street again.
