The City of Vernon is reminding residents that we all have a part to play in ensuring the safety of roads and sidewalks, particularly when winter weather creates icy conditions.

Shovel snow and remove ice from sidewalks and foot paths bordering your property.

If possible, please pile the snow on the boulevard or front yard areas to allow for snow storage along the curb line.

In areas where snow must be plowed into the road, please pile snow as close to the curb line as possible. Snow plowed into the travelled lanes of a road creates a hazard for motorists and increases snow removal costs for the city.

Remove vehicles from roadways following a snowfall until the road is plowed and sanded.

When driving, slow down for the conditions and stay well back from snow clearing equipment and never try and pass a plow truck.
