Kudos for our Winter Works Employees

18 Feb 2020

During the winter season, municipal crews work diligently throughout the day and night in support of snow and ice removal and clean-up activities.

In advance of and during weather events, winter works staff closely monitor precipitation and take precautionary measures to mitigate the impact of snow and ice accumulation. With the support of Corporate Communications, residents are informed of ongoing clearing efforts and service levels; particularly with respect to service disruptions and cancellations, parking ban updates and street and sidewalk clearing efforts.

Whether it’s responding to repeated nor’easter blizzards resulting in significant snowfall accumulation, or temperature fluctuations with intermitent snow, rain, and freezing rain , we’re always exploring new and innovative ways to meet citizens’ needs and improve services. One of the pieces of equipment that was purchased last season was the ice breaking machine, which can be used on sidewalks throughout the region to break up that thick stubborn ice we saw after many of last year's storms.

For always rising to the occasion, no matter what Mother Nature throws at you, we recognize our winter works employees.
