The town has released its street sweeping schedule that begins May 1.

Residents are being asked to remove their vehicles from the streets on the day it's scheduled to occur in their neighbourhood.

Each subdivision is scheduled for a day of sweeping and it follows a successful pre-sweep that removed a significant winter sanding material from the roads in advance of the main program. 

“Now that the pre-sweep is done, we need your help," says Wally Hume, the town's roads manager. "When you see the signs in your community, please move your vehicle to off-street parking."

He says to effectively clean town roads from curb to curb, all vehicles must be removed from the streets. Residents are asked to relocate their vehicles to driveways, alleys, and parking lots on sweeping day.

The dates listed above are tentative and are dependant on weather conditions and/or any unforeseen mechanical problems.

Residents should watch for notification signs that will be placed at neighbourhood entrances 48 hours prior to cleaning. They will be removed when sweeping is complete, signalling the all clear to assume parking on the streets.

Besides vehicles, residents are also asked to move curb ramps, hockey, and basketball nets and are reminded residents that sporting equipment should always be kept on private property.

Street sweeping creates significant dust and residents may wish to close their windows while their neighbourhood is being swept.
