Snow removal under control in Perth – Crews working to improve conditions for all

February 16, 2017 by

The Town of Perth has released information on its snow-clearing efforts.

Officials want to let residents know that snow plowing resources (both labour & machine) have been deployed to manage the large volume of snow that we have received over the last few days.

Residents woke up Thursday to some wider streets around Perth. Snowbank removal continues tonight.

A statement from the town says all equipment is functioning well and staff are in the field dealing with the record snow fall. Snow bank removals are being carried out over the next few nights to alleviate parking issues.

They say the challenge has been a record snow fall of 30 cms last Sunday followed by a subsequent snow event of 5-10cm. days.

Mayor John Fenik recognizes that this extreme snow fall event is causing challenges for our residents in their daily travel either by foot or by car, and with the support of the public our snow crews should have the majority of the roadway/sidewalk duties in hand. “I want to thank those public works employees who are working tirelessly to get the snow removal job done,” says Mayor John Fenik.

As the snow bank removal continues over the next few nights, residents are asked to not park their cars on the street from 12 midnight to 6 am.
