PREVIOUS POST: With heavy snowfall in the forecast for Coaldale today, Friday, December 29 and Saturday, December 30 as of 8 a.m. the Town has declared its Snow Routes active.

The Town provides snow removal for residents based on a route priority system.  High priority areas include all routes used by Emergency Vehicles.  To find out more information on plowing routes please view the Town’s Snow Removal Priority Map.

Snow Route signs can be found along the high priority routes in Coaldale. In accordance with Bylaw 570-R-11-06, the Traffic Control and Dangerous Goods Bylaw, once a snow route is declared, citizens living on these routes must park their vehicles in their own driveway or on a street off of the snow routes. Vehicles not removed will be towed and all expenses for towing will be the responsibility of the vehicle owner.

In most cases the snow route will only be active for a maximum of 72 hours but may be extended if weather conditions warrant. As well, as per Bylaw 725-R-03-17, the Community Standards Bylaw, citizens are not allowed to shovel snow onto property owned by the Town of Coaldale. This refers to town roads.

We appreciate your cooperation in ensuring these high priority areas are cleared of snow as soon as possible to ensure both emergency and school access in Coaldale is maintained.
