Each year at the end of the summer, the Public Works Department prepares its overall snow removal strategy. This planning is essential to ensure quality service for residents.
In the fall of 2019, the City met with private snow removal contractors to present the tools available for effective coordination of snow removal operations. Since winter 2019-2020, the City is now emailing contractors authorized to perform snow removal to announce the start time of snow removal operations throughout the City.
The City is divided into thirteen (13) snow removal sectors where main and secondary arteries and collector streets have priority over residential streets. Eight (8) of these sectors are maintained by City employees, and the remaining five (5) are cleared by contractors.
