JANUARY 11TH WINER STORM
The municipality would like to thank residents and infrastructure users for their caution utilized during the Blizzard storm experienced in the area Wednesday January 11th, 2017.
As we had not received much snow to date the majority of roadways weathered the storm quite well with spotted drifts. Notably there were some areas given terrain etc. that experienced heavier drifting.
Crews started at 4:00 a.m. with additional Plows and Graders working.
We thank those that called in to report troubled areas so they could be addressed.
Public Works crews now stand on high alert for future significant
precipitation as this will impact infrastructure differently now that ditches are full.
In the event of significant precipitation Crews will be dispatched as needed
to ensure to the best of our ability priority corridors are cleared ahead of
regular travel hours.
As always if there are any areas needing
attention please contact the office (306) 387 - 6244.
