Residents Asked not to Move Snow onto or across Roadways

Feb 21, 2019

Moving snow or ice onto or across any roadway in Greater Sudbury is a violation of the City’s fouling by-law 2011-219.

The by-law applies to anyone clearing snow, including residents, tenants and companies employed to clear driveways during the winter months.

Placing snow onto or transporting snow across a road or sidewalk not only creates an uneven surface and a hazard for drivers and pedestrians, but also removes surface treatments such as sand or salt the City has set down.

Violations of the by-law can result in a fine of $260 under the Provincial Offences Act.
