SIDEWALK CLEANING
The owner or occupant of any premises abutting a sidewalk shall clear away all snow, ice, dirt or other obstruction from sidewalks situated on land adjoining the property owned or occupied by them within FORTY-EIGHT (48) HOURS after the time such snow, ice, dirt or other obstruction was deposited or formed on the sidewalk.

SAFETY REMINDER
Parents, please remind your children to stay off the ice at the upper and lower dams. There is open water due to the aeration equipment. The ice on the dams is NOT SAFE.

WINTER GUIDELINES
Now that the snow has arrived we ask that the residents of the village take some proactive steps to help our Public Works department clear the snow more efficiently.
• Whenever possible, park your vehicles off the roadway to allow for the plows to clear as much snow as possible, especially in the cul-de-sacs as vehicles make it difficult to maneuver snow removal equipment
• Ensure that no vehicles are left on the street for more than 72 hours, as they could be towed, and it impedes the snow removal process
• Try to shovel as much snow from your sidewalk onto your lawn as possible.
• Be a snow angel and help those that are unable to shovel their own snow, it will be appreciated.
If you have any comments or suggestions, please contact the village office at 403-546-3888.

COUNCIL MEETINGS
December's meeting will be on December 16th at 7 PM at the Village Office. Public Welcome.
