SNOW CAT - Terry Case of Wild Case Contracting uses a bobcat to clear snow from the sidewalk in front of his residence after the heavy snowfall that hit Lacombe over the weekend.

As the heavy snows received over this past weekend herald the arrival of winter, the City of Lacombe would like to remind residents of the policies and bylaws regarding snow removal on Lacombe’s streets and sidewalks.

Snow removal on streets will begin in the upcoming weeks.

The City will be placing no parking signs on streets slated for plowing at least 12 hours in advance.

Pursuant to the Traffic Bylaw (223.312.2) any vehicles not moved before plows come through may be towed at the owner’s expense.

Please remember that it is the responsibility of all residents, whether they own or rent their home, to keep all public sidewalks adjoining their property clear of ice, snow, sand or other debris.

Residents are required to clear away snow and ice within 48 hours.

Snow, ice, sand and other debris cannot be shoveled into a nearby gutter or onto any other portion of a public roadway.

Water dripping from an awning, eaves trough or other part of a building onto a public roadway or sidewalk must be removed by the owner or occupier to prevent ice buildup.

Electrical extension cords must not be placed across public sidewalks or driveways because they create a dangerous trip hazard.

If you need to plug in your vehicles or trailers, officials also ask that you ensure that the extension cord is suspended 8 ft. (2.4m) above the sidewalk.

This requirement is in effect all year round.
