Windrow Clearing

With the recent snowfall and the many conversations surrounding and concerns raised regarding how best to address windrows, I would like to update everyone on a few things the Town is considering. Specifically, the Town is exploring the creation of a program to provide a windrow snow clearing service, free of charge, to seniors and physically challenged residents who do not have an able-bodied person living in their household. For those who may not be aware, a snow windrow is the bank of snow that is left across one’s driveway by a snowplow. Staff will be presenting a report soon, and Council will decide if this approach should be implemented for next winter. I believe that it is our responsibility as a Council and municipality to explore all options to provide services our residents may need, in particular, seniors and physically challenged individuals in our community.

I will keep everyone updated as we continue the discussions and work towards a solution. More to come…
