Winter Maintenance and Snow Removal

Depending on the weather conditions, winter road patrol is performed seven days a week from October 1 until April 1. The Municipal roads system is broken into four routes with each route taking roughly 8 to 10 hours to plow once.

Ontario Provincial Police and Emergency Services remind all homeowners when clearing driveways of snow not to pile the snow onto the travelled portions of the road or highway. It is unlawful and hazardous.
