Residents are advised to exercise patience and caution as roads and sidewalks may become slippery. Staff are monitoring weather forecasts and will be patrolling roads throughout the event.
• We are prepared to salt & plow the priority road and sidewalk network
• We will deploy plowing resources over the remainder of the transportation network as necessary as the weather or road conditions change.
• A residential plow deployment and or an overnight parking ban will be determined as accumulations will trigger these initiatives
