Snow Clearing Information for Residents

February 4, 2019
Esquimalt News

In the event of snowfall, property owners and residents are advised that the Township of Esquimalt’s Streets and Traffic Regulation Bylaw requires you to clear snow and ice from the sidewalk in front of your premises. Please remember your elderly or disabled neighbours who would appreciate your assistance with snow removal.

The Township requests that when you clean your driveway and sidewalks please place the snow on the right side of your driveway as you face the road. This will keep snow plows from filling in your driveway as they clear the roads.

In addition, residents are asked to ensure that surface drains (which may be located at the bottom of driveways and stairwells) are clear of snow and debris and remain clear through the winter. Township crews will make every effort to keep roadside catch basins clear.

The co-operation of all property owners and residents in this matter is greatly appreciated.
