Plows ready to roll

The City of West Kelowna is asking its residents to assist those tasked with keeping streets clear of snow.

With 10 to 15 centimetres of the white stuff expected to fall by Wednesday morning, the city is reminding residents not to park on the street during the snowfall to give plows ample room to clear both lanes.

Vehicles impeding snowplows can be fined up to $50.

Plows will be out in force clearing all Priority 1 roads. That means there could be a delay in clearing Priority 2 and Priority 3 roadways.

The city says it could take up to 48 hours for all roads to be plowed at least once.

Here are some tips to help the city keep the roads clear.

  • Don’t shovel snow from driveways and sidewalks back onto the street. This can impact the plow driver’s work and occasionally results in unsafe conditions. Pile snow on your property and keep storm drains clear as much as possible when doing so.
  • Windrows left by passing plows are inevitable. Plows direct snow to the right, so when shoveling, pile snow to the left (when facing your property) of the driveway and plows will drag less snow across your access.
  • Remove snow and ice from sidewalks and walkways bordering your property. The city only removes snow and ice from sidewalks that are adjacent to civic buildings and parks and pedestrian accesses.
  • Please clear snow from around fire hydrants adjacent to your property.
