Oct 31, 2019

With a special weather statement issued by Environment Canada calling for the first snowfall of the season, City crews are prepared to respond.

Environment Canada has issued a special weather statement for a winter storm event that could see the city receive significant snowfall Thursday evening, and into Friday.

Weather conditions are closely monitored by municipal staff around-the-clock, seven days-a-week, using a customized weather service, Ontario Ministry of Transportation highway reports, and data generated from local remote weather stations.

Staff regularly patrols municipal roads throughout the city to assess the need for plowing, sanding and salting.
