Ward 11 News: Snow Clearing Update

  • Share

Ward 11 official website
Following a record snowfall this past year, City Council voted in favour of adding $9 million to the snow clearing budget for the 2018-2019 winter season. All sidewalks adjacent to City-owned properties will be cleared within 24 hours, windrows will be plowed away from priority wheelchair ramp locations and and an additional 100 kilometres of pathways will be cleared thanks to the budget boost.
Over this past winter, snow and ice clearing was identified by citizens as a significant barrier to pedestrians and motorists alike. You have told me that Calgary is a winter city and that better winter conditions for walking and getting around our city must be achieved.
In the coming months, City Council will be debating whether to make the enhanced snow clearing permanent in November’s budget. I have heard loud and clear from Ward 11 residents that this budget boost, if it continues, should be found within the existing budget rather than result in increased taxes.
