Winter Edition - 2017
- 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.
