SNOW REMOVAL

The Town of Three Hills is continually attempting to remove snow and ice from the streets. Signs will be posted indicating areas that will be cleaned. Please refrain from parking in these areas as parked vehicles only hinder snow removal and the vehicle owners could find themselves boxed in with snow if the Public Works Department is required to work around the vehicle. Thank you for your patience while the Public Works Department works diligently to clear the snow and ice.

According to the Town Bylaw, snow and ice is to be removed from a resident's sidewalk within 48 hours of the snowfall. When removing the snow and ice from the sidewalk, residents are prohibited from putting the snow and ice into the street.
