When the Fort finally sees the snow arrive in bucket loads, there's a plan in place for plowing roads.
City of Fort Saskatchewan road crews have a system that prioritizes plowing of the highways, arterial and collector roads.
"When it starts to snow, we look after the highways first then we'll have our graders move into the town's mains, from there we'll move into our collectors," said Brian Rogers, City of Fort Saskatchewan manager of roads and utilities. "Our residentials are left until there's an accumulation of snow of at least three inches."
Residents with alleyways will see those plowed once the streets are done.
There are some cost saving methods used by the city as well.
"We windrow our snow to the side of the road and we have storage on the boulevards, it's the most cost effective way," said Rogers. "If we truck it all out, our costs go way up."
Residents with questions or concerns can phone the city and put in a service request. Crews will be dispatched to check over the area of concern on an individual basis.
