- Snow from private driveways should not be deposited onto or across the road allowance due to liability reasons.
- It is an offence under Section 181 of the Ontario Highway Traffic Act to deposit snow on roadways, therefore property owners will be liable for any damage to motor vehicles which is caused by snow, or chunks of snow on or across the traveled portion of the road. This also creates the opportunity for the buildup of snowdrifts on the road when the snow is left in a pile on the edge of the road.
- If any resident or contractor needs to install a utility crossing, driveway entrance, or any other work within the Township road allowance, please ensure that you contact the Public Works & Engineering Manager.
- It is necessary to give notice of a minimum of three (3) business days.
- If you notice any missing road signs, please call the office as soon as possible at (519) 247-3687.
