Street Snow Removal:
The Town of Three Hills works hard to ensure that snow removal is completed in a timely manner. For the safety of the community, it is imperative that specific areas are cleared first. As such, the Town follows the Street Maintenance Policy as approved by Council.
As stated in the policy, snow removal will be completed in priority order. A colour code system has been issued for each area to assist with this process. Red will be cleared first, followed by Yellow and then Green will be completed on a rotation between Zones One, Two and Three.
Sidewalk Snow Removal:
All sidewalks adjacent to municipal-owned buildings shall be cleared by Town personnel and equipment where possible. Sidewalks will be cleared in a timely fashion in accordance with the street snow removal priorities.
All sidewalks adjacent to private property are the responsibility of the resident. In accordance with the Town's Community Standards Bylaw, the occupier of any residence or business shall have their sidewalks cleared of all snow and ice within the first 48 hours of a snowfall. When removing snow and ice, residents are prohibited from placing the snow into the street without prior written consent from the Town.
Pathway Snow Removal:
All pathways within town limits will be closed for the winter with the exception of the pathways shown in Schedule "C” of the Street Maintenance Policy and noted below:
- Pathway adjacent to Highway 583
- Pathways along the perimeter and within Anderson Park
- Pathway on 6th Ave NE – portion of the pathway that runs north and south on the north side of Town in Kneehill County
- Pathway on the west side of 1st Ave SE starting at approximately the tennis courts heading south to 11th St SE.
Snow clearing of these pathways will commence as weather, time and Town resources permit.
