As a general rule, after heavy snow falls, the snow is cleared from the streets in the following order:
Collector streets – Palliser Trail, Fox Lake Trail, Pioneer Trail, 2nd Avenue, 3rd Street, Centre Street.
School Bus Routes – 7th Avenue, local streets around both schools.
Airport / Fire Department
Residential Streets & Avenues
Small Cul-de-sacs and Crescents
There are 43.68 km of open roads that require maintenance within the Town boundaries (streets, avenues, back lanes, perimeter roads).
Some streets are cleared by moving the snow to the sides of the street and putting it on the boulevard, but vehicles parked on the road and driveways that need to be cleared increase the time it takes. Of course the grader blade is not as wide as the streets so several passes are required.
Streets without boulevards (Main Street, 7th Avenue, etc.) required a grader, a loader and gravel trucks to truck the snow away. The cemetery roads also require maintenance.
