With snow in the forecast, the City of Armstrong is reminding residents to remove all parked vehicles from city streets to assist in snow removal activities.
Vehicles parked on any street within the city create unsafe conditions and will cause interference with plowing, hauling, sanding and the maintenance required for the snow removal program.
“Uncleaned sections of the roadway create hazards for pedestrians, other vehicles and first responders,” said Warren Smith, community services manager for the city.
Pursuant to the Traffic and Parking Regulations Bylaw No. 1788 Section 5.2 and the Motor Vehicle Act, the city has the authority to tow vehicles at the owners’ expense.
The City of Armstrong Bylaws and Public Works departments thanks residents for co-operation so that the roads can be effectively maintained during the winter season.
