Snow Removal & Ice Control Policy with Priority Snow Removal Route Map
During the winter months, snow and ice on sidewalks can seriously impair the ability of people to get around safely – especially elderly and those with mobility restrictions.
For that reason, the Town of Assiniboia’s Bylaw No. 481 Section 7, states ”Every occupant and in case there is not occupant the owner thereof of every house, shop, building, lot or parcel of land fronting or abutting on any street or streets where there are sidewalks shall within twenty-four hours of the falling or depositing thereon of any snow or dirt or ice cause the same to be removed from the said sidewalk in front of or adjacent to such house, shop, building, lot or parcel of land.”
We ask when shoveling, that you refrain from putting snow or ice on the streets as it can create hazards for traffic and hampers our removal efforts. Snow can be placed on the boulevard or your own yard. Sidewalk snow removal will be addressed by Bylaw Enforcement on a written complaint basis.
