Oh the weather outside is frightfull….

Its that time of year again Milton.  SNOW IS COMING.

Well some of it is here now is small doses but the weather reports are showing that the GMA (Greater Milton Area) is slated for a little dusting of the white stuff over the course of the weekend.  With this in mind, I thought it prudent to give you a link to the Town of Milton website showing some information on snow plowing, when it happens, and what you can do to help everything out.

One of the BEST things people can do during a snow fall is to keep their cars off the road as to allow the snow plow to clean your streets properly.  We saw last year during a big snow fall, there were a number of people who parked their cars on the road and ended up ticketed or snowed in because the plow had to move around them.  Lets hope we dont have this happen again this year.

Here is the link to the Town of Milton SNOW PAGE and if you DO have any questions, please email or call.  If we do get a large amount of snow, please take this into consideration when calling as you might have to leave a message but we will do our best to get to your street.  In a recent presentation to council, engineering services outlined many improvements to our snow clearing policy and procedures, including using GPS to track each of our plows and ensure things are done as quickly as possible.

Here is an outline of our snow plowing response times for each type of street in Milton.

Hopefully this will give you some information on how things are done and what you can do to assist in helping our crews get to every street as quickly as possible.  This coming weekend might not be a HUGE storm, but this is Canada and it WILL happen.  Bookmark this page and share it with your friends on Twitter and Facebook to keep it handy if and when the big one comes.

NOW…Im out to shovel what little came down today and lets hope for a safe, snow free weekend.

I’ll see you at the doors.
