Winter Edition - 2017

 

Snow Clearing Procedures

  • The District of Logan Lake regularly reviews its snow clearing procedures and policies to ensure it is responding to snow events in a timely and efficient manner and that it is meeting community expectations. The District has looked at eliminating the creation of snow berms/windrows at the end of residential driveways. The review examined snow clearing practices in other communities, both in the province and in other countries, from a cost and feasibility perspective.
     
  • The review yielded a range of options, from a best case scenario of $65,000 per year and an initial capital outlay of $70,000, to a worst case scenario of $105,000 per year with an initial capital outlay of $250,000 to $500,000. The option costs varied depending on the level of service provided, the terrain serviced, and the complexity of the machinery. Council considered these costs with all other budget priorities and determined that most taxpayers would likely oppose either absorbing the necessary tax increase or decreasing other levels of service to accommodate the additional costs.
     
  • Owners or occupiers are not permitted to place snow or ice from their property or the sidewalk abutting their property onto the travelled portion of a road.  (District of Logan Lake Road Right-of-Way Usage Bylaw No. 678)
  • Operation of snowmobiles and snow vehicles is not permitted in any public place or park within the District of Logan Lake. (District of Logan Lake Protection of Municipal Property Bylaw No. 725)
     
  • Property and/or building owners are responsible for ensuring that all snow and ice is cleared by the occupiers to a distance of 1.5 meters from their storefront walls by 10:00 am daily.  (District of Logan Lake Lakeview Plaza Maintenance and Protection Bylaw No. 685)
     
  • The District is authorized to remove any vehicle from any highway where the vehicle in total or in part impedes snow removal.  (District of Logan Lake Traffic and Street Use Regulations Bylaw No. 720)
     
  • Placement of solid waste and recycling carts is not to interfere with snow ploughing, snow removal, or street cleaning.  (District of Logan Lake Solid Waste and Recycling Removal Disposal Bylaw No. 827)
     
  • Every occupier of a trade premises or multiple dwelling must ensure that the area surrounding solid waste and recycling receptacles is kept free from snow and ice. (District of Logan Lake Solid Waste and Recycling Removal Disposal Bylaw No. 827)
