The Town of Huntsville is reassuring residents that they are ready for this weekend’s snow. With over 400 kilometers of roads, and many sidewalks, the town says the Winter Operations crew work hard to keep up with mother-nature. The Town often receives up to 285 centimetres of snow each year. This weekend forecasts state our area could receive upwards of 50 centimetres of snow through this snow event into Monday.

The town is asking residents to

  • Please remove all basketball nets and stands, garbage cans etc. from the roadway as well as snow storage locations
  • Keep sidewalks accessible at all times by not parking across sidewalks in your driveways, removing garbage cans from sidewalks and picking up newspapers to avoid getting stuck in the sidewalk machine after a snowfall
  • Don’t park your vehicle on the street overnight. It could get towed.
  • Don’t shovel, push or throw snow onto the road or onto a sidewalk
  • Keep a safe distance back from plows and avoid passing.
