Update: January 2019

Help the City of Kelowna Help You

Snow season is upon us again and the City of Kelowna is asking all residents help them help you. As reported in their January 9th update:


“Residents are asked to be patient as crews will focus on maintaining the service levels of major routes when significant snow falls before attending to local roads in neighbourhoods,” said Stephen Bryans, Roadway Operations Supervisor. “Residents are encouraged to move their vehicles off the road to help plows clear the snow from curb to curb safely and quickly. Also, with the temperatures hovering around zero degrees Celsius, residents can expect black ice to form over the next few days due to the freeze-thaw cycle. While crews will be out sanding and de-icing, motorists should be mindful of vehicle speeds and take extra care on sidewalks.”


The City updates as notes that bike lanes attached to roadways are not cleared and are used to store accumulated snow cleared from roads. As well, residents and business owners are reminded that they are responsible for clearing the snow off sidewalks adjacent to their property. Some residents find snow clearing a difficult task, particularly seniors and those with an injury or mobility challenges. The City encourages residents to help out their neighbours by becoming a Snow Angel.
