Driveway Windrow Snow Clearing Program

The program will provide windrow snow clearing service after every snow plowing operation from December 2, 2019 to March 27, 2020. A space approximately three metres (10 feet) wide will be cleared in the windrow to allow room for one car to pass.

Windrows will be cleared after active snow plowing operations have been completed. Residents should allow up to 36 hours after the end of a snow storm for their windrow to be cleared. Clearing to bare pavement cannot be guaranteed.

This amount is non-refundable. Applicants who qualify for financial assistance may be eligible to receive the service at no cost.
