While the snowfall has slowed, The Significant Weather Event declaration in the Town of Huntsville remains in effect as road and sidewalk conditions still require significant snow clearing efforts. Due to the volume of snow, it will likely take 72 to 96 hours to return to normal snow maintenance services. Residents are asked to exercise extreme caution and only travel if necessary.
Public Work Crews have been working in challenging conditions over the past 24 hours to safely plow our roads and, will continue to address snow removal in high-traffic areas to low-traffic areas in our community. Residents are asked to remain patient as our crews safely address and maintain their routes.
“Our crews have been absolutely amazing, and I thank them from the bottom of my heart for continuing to work through these challenging and difficult conditions, away from their families and friends, during this Holiday season.” Notes Tarmo Uukkivi, Director of Operations and Protective Service.
The Town of Huntsville would also like to thank the community for their understanding as our crews work during this weather event. Please remember these helpful tips to assist the snow removal efforts over the next few days:
- Do not park vehicles on roadways or block sidewalks
- Clearing your snow onto sidewalks or roadways is prohibited and interferes with removal efforts
- Stay clear of the snowplows and other snow equipment
The Town of Huntsville will continue to monitor weather over the next few days and will provide additional updates as they become available. Visit News and Notices on Huntsville.ca for updates.
