Registration for the City’s Driveway Windrow Snow Clearing Program opens August 10 for seniors and people with disabilities to help clear snow at the end of driveways during road plowing.
“Registration for the program opens in the summer to reach as many people as possible with this service which helps seniors and persons with disabilities live independently,” said Bob Levesque, manager Works & Technical Services. “The service is performed after each snow plowing.”
Driveway Windrow Snow Clearing Program
This program runs from November 30, 2015 to March 11, 2016. The windrow snow clearing service will plow a three metre (10 feet) wide area at the end of the driveway for one car to pass. The service may take up to 36 hours after a snow storm and bare pavement cannot be guaranteed.
Who is Eligible?
Residents who are 65 years and older in 2015 and people with disabilities can apply for the program. The cost of the program is either $200 or free if the applicant meets financial assistance criteria.
