Lake of Bay’s Public Works Department is reminding residents, that parked vehicles that impede winter operations will be towed without any warning, at the owner’s expense as well as be subject to a fine.

The township says there is NO PARKING or standing of vehicles on any road or street allowed in the municipality when it interferes with winter operations.

Vehicles parked on municipally maintained roads make it difficult for winter operations staff to clear the roadways, and in some cases force plows to back all the way out of the road, sometimes for long stretches and often in poor weather conditions.

Steve Peace Superintendent of Public Works for Lake of Bays says “This puts Municipal Operator’s safety at risk and greatly impacts our service delivery to our residents and visitors. It will not be tolerated,” he added.
