Driveway Windrow Snow Clearing Pilot Program Accepting Applications

Nov 10, 2011

The City of Mississauga is again offering the Driveway Windrow Snow Clearing Pilot Program to older adults and individuals who are physically disabled.

"The Driveway Windrow Snow Clearing Pilot Program has been approved by Council for another winter season and is available on a first come, first serve basis to 300 older adults and individuals who are physically disabled," said Joe Pitushka, director of Engineering and Works.

"A windrow is the snow left at the bottom of a driveway after a snowplow has cleared a road. The pilot program will provide windrow snow clearing after every snow plowing operation but it could take up to 36 hours after the end of a snow storm for the windrows to be cleared."

Residents who are 65 years and older and individuals who are physically disabled can apply for eligibility through an application process that will determine whether it will be a free service or have a $200 fee attached. Visit the City's website windrow page for details on the program and for a printable application form. City of Mississauga Community Centres will be accepting applications until 9 p.m. on Wednesday, December 7.

As Canada's sixth largest city, Mississauga is home to 734,000 residents and 55,000 businesses, including 63 Fortune 500 companies with Canadian head offices or major divisional head offices. A diverse, progressive and award-winning municipality located on the shores of Lake Ontario in the heart of the Greater Toronto Area, Mississauga is "Leading Today for Tomorrow" by focussing on delivering services, implementing its Strategic Plan, delivering value for money, maintaining infrastructure and continuing to be an employer of choice.
