Snow clearing from streets notices
With the onset of winter weather conditions, the City of Lacombe is asking residents for their patience and cooperation as crews work hard to to clear snow away from roadways.
‘No Parking’ signs will be placed on streets at least 12 hours in advance of snow clearing operations. Vehicles that impede snow clearing operations by failing to move off the signed street will be ticketed and towed, at the owner's expense, to the nearest area not scheduled for snow clearing.
Enforcement Services will still attempt to contact the owners of offending vehicle prior to taking any action, to give them a chance to avoid fines and tow charges. This measure is expected to significantly improve snow clearing operations in residential areas, and lower the number of equipment incidents.
Residents can find out which streets are being cleared on any given day by reviewing:
- Calling Infrastructure Services at 403-782-1261
- On-site no parking signs
Residents will also be able to sign up for text or email notifications in January 2016 through the ReCollect snow clearing service. ReCollect is a free subscription-based service accessible through the City of Lacombe website, which will notify the subscriber via text, email and/or phone of upcoming snow clearing operations.
