Crews prep for winter's worst

The City of Kelowna is ready for the white stuff, and it is in the forecast.

“Our trucks will be out and geared-up to deal with the white powder and our crews are committed to making the city safe for everyone during the winter months,” says Stephen Bryans, Roadways Supervisor.

Throughout the season, streets will be cleared on a priority basis. Priority 1 includes main roads such as Gordon Drive. Priority 2 includes collector roads, such as Richter Street, bus routes, school zones, town centres and emergency vehicle stations. Priority 3 includes local roads within neighbourhoods and priority four includes laneways.

The City reminds residents they are responsible for removing snow and ice from driveways and sidewalks along their property.

During this time of year, some Kelowna residents find it almost impossible to keep sidewalks free of snow and ice.

The City’s Snow Busters Program encourages residents to lend a helping hand and aims to recognize those who help without being asked or expecting something in return. Residents can nominate their Snow Busters online at kelowna.ca/transportation, by email at [email protected], or can send a letter to City of Kelowna Snow Busters Program, 1435 Water Street, Kelowna, BC V1Y 1J4.

For regular inquiries and emergency plowing or sanding after regular business hours, please call 250-469-8600, option 1.
