Windsor City Council is allocating an additional one million dollars for extra snow clearing expenses, to help residents and business operators dig out from the latest snowfall. The additional money is to be funded from the snow removal budget and the City’s reserve funds, if needed.

The city says that the number of snow clearing machines on area roadways will be increased to 53.

As well, four work crews and 31 pieces of equipment will be dedicated to Priority 1 and 2 Corridor Bus Stops.  Those can be found at this link here.

Free parking will be available on city surface parking lots until 6pm on Thursday January 9th.  As well, community centres, parks and arenas are great spots for public parking to help free up street space for plough operators.

They report that it is anticipated the side streets will be passable by Tuesday afternoon, depending on developing weather conditions.

Work on city pathways and trails will be postponed until after priority sidewalks and stops are completed, which they warn could take a week or more.

Emergency Services requests if you see an emergency service vehicle stopped on a side street, that you avoid the street if possible and that residents help keep neighbours safe by clearing hydrants and gas metres of snow.
