Now that winter has truly arrived with one of the biggest snowfalls of the season the Town of High River is reminding residents to shovel their walks.
According to the Towns Snow Removal Bylaw the snow must be removed within 24 hours of a snowfall.
This bylaw applies to homes and businesses outside of the downtown area as the Town will clean the sidewalks in the downtown area for the rest of the season.
Owners must ensure the snow is cleared no matter if the property is occupied, vacant or is an unoccupied distressed property.
If property owners cannot remove snow on sidewalks they must make alternate arrangements with friends, neighbours or contractors.
The Town has a “snow angels” program for people to volunteer with by assisting with snow removal for people who cannot do it themselves like seniors or single moms.
If you are interested becoming a snow angel, or require their services, please call FCSS at 403-652-8620.
The Town hired a contractor to clear the snow off of all of the roads and parking spaces in the downtown core Wednesday (Dec 20) evening.
