Town equipment will not clear private driveways entrances unless except in extenuating circumstances. Snow placed in driveways or private walks by the Town when performing routine snow removal is the responsibility of the property owner to remove. The Town will generally clear a certain predetermined number of sidewalks as soon after it stops snowing as possible, however this can take up to 2 days after a storm to complete.

As a reminder: Town bylaw states that it is unlawful to:

"plow, push or otherwise relocate snow onto any town street or sidewalk".

 There are fines for violation of this bylaw. It may seem strict or unnecessary to some; however, it saves your tax dollars and improves public safety at the same time.
