Snow Removal

Snow Removal

During the snow and ice conditions the District of Stewart works extra hard to maintain a safe town for residents and visitors. This includes snow removal and ice control measures as well as resources to assist your family to prepare for emergency situations. The cooperation of citizens is requested to assist us in achieving this goal, particularly in preventing vehicles from interfering with snow clearing operations and by keeping snow cleared from their driveway on their own property.

In 2011 Council approved Snow Removal Policy.

The goal of the Policy is to maintain the District’s roadways, back lanes, sidewalks, active transportation trails and designated park pathways in such a manner so as to:

  • Provide safe and accessible operating conditions for motorists and pedestrians;
  • Reduce the hazards of icy road conditions;
  • Minimize economic losses to the community and industry resulting from unsatisfactory winter driving conditions;
  • Facilitate the handling of emergencies by Police, Fire and Ambulance Services during the winter;

For the purpose of snow clearing, the street system has been classified in three priority categories. Please, check the map of snow removal routes.
