Snow Removal Reminder for Ratepayers

 

Winter has once again arrived and with it comes the snow. Lac Ste. Anne County would like to remind all residents that the responsibility to keep sidewalks free and clear of debris within a certain timeframe, is that of the property owner(s) or occupant(s); this includes ice, snow, and slush.

 

Please refer to Bylaw 33-2008 - Traffic Bylaw, Section 21 as listed below:

Bylaw 33-2008/Section 21.
