Description and Service Details
Description (Service) Snow Clearing: 
* sanding/salting of roads starts at the first signs of snowfall or that roads are beginning to ice 
* primary (arterial) roads are sanded or salted first followed by secondary roads 
* residential streets generally receive sand/salt treatment at intersections, hills and sharp curves 
 
Plowing: 
* when snow begins to accumulate, primary and secondary roads are cleared and salted first to ensure that the public, and emergency service vehicles can safely travel to hospitals, schools and work, and get to public transportation systems during or immediately after a snowfall 
* residential streets are plowed only after snow accumulates in excess of 7.5 centimetres 
* when all streets require plowing, they are to be cleared within 24 hours after the end of the storm 
* heavy snowfalls or successive storms can sometimes extend this period longer than 24 hours 
 
Sidewalks: 
* cleared only after snow accumulates in excess of five centimetres and after roads have been cleared 
* sidewalks located on primary and secondary roads with schools are plowed first then residential sidewalks 
* sidewalk salting and sanding is done only on primary and secondary sidewalks when extremely slippery conditions exist 
 
How residents can help: 
* remove snow from fire hydrants and drainage catch basins near your property 
* remove plowed snow at the end of your driveway - snowplow operators must push snow to the curb or shoulder, possibly covering recently shoveled driveways
