The City is now accepting applications for its Windrow Snow Clearing Program for some residents needing snow clearing assistance. The program is available for up to 300 residents who are 65 years or older, or who have a physical disability.
Program participants can expect to have a three-metre space in their windrow cleared during the winter season. A windrow is the pile of snow left at the end of a driveway after the street has been plowed. The program does not include the clearing of the whole driveway.
“We understand the challenges that some residents face when it snows,” said Mickey Frost, Director, Works Operations and Maintenance. “Our windrow service makes winter easier for program participants to deal with throughout the season.”
Winter crews will clear a space in a resident’s driveway beginning up to 36 hours after the end of a snow storm and when road plowing is completed. Windrow snow clearing may not be to bare pavement, but will make the driveway safe and passable for one car to get in and out.
