Staying informed!

When snow removal operations begin, the City provides various communications methods to permit everyone to stay informed and to move their vehicles off the public road, if and when needed. 

An announcement is made by the City by 3 p.m. at the latest on the day of the snow clearing operations using the following means of communication.
