Lacombe residents reminded to clear snow from walkways

Officials say snow removal is a matter of community safety

With the arrival of wintery weather, the City of Lacombe’s Enforcement Services reminds everyone that it is the responsibility of all residents, whether they own or rent their homes, to keep all public sidewalks adjoining their properties clear of ice and snow.

Residents are required to clear away snow and ice within 48 hours of accumulation. Water dripping from an awning, eavestrough or other part of a building on to a public roadway or sidewalk must be removed to prevent ice buildup and causing a slipping hazard.

Electrical extension cords must not be placed across public sidewalks or driveways because they create dangerous trip hazards. If you need to plug in your vehicles or trailers, please ensure that the extension cord is suspended 8 ft. (2.4 metres) above the sidewalk. This requirement is in effect all year round.

The City has also placed a free self-serve salt/sand box for public use on the east side of the main entrance to the Infrastructure Services Yard, located at 5444- 56th Ave.
