The Town of High River is making good use of this break from the cold weather to remove snow from a bunch of streets around town.

Roads, Solid Waste and Recycling Supervisor Peter Leek says they're concentrating on areas around schools right now.

"What we're doing is our priority one's and priority two's. So, I mean we're working around the schools right now, our main routes through town. We're just trying to get things cleaned up a little better so people can get around a little easier. I doubt we'll get into the residential areas, but our priority one's and priority two's, so our main aterial roads and all that kind of stuff.

Leek says they've put out a bunch of signs around areas they're working in to let residents know so they can move their vehicles if they choose to.

"We put the signs up, if they're compliant they'll move them that's fine. If they're not going to move them, that's fine. We're not going to chase them down to do it. I mean it is just snow, it'll disappear, we'll go around them but we are trying to give people a days notice."

Leek says with warmer weather on the way, the more snow they get out of the way the faster the roads clear.
