Snow Control Guidelines are Now in Effect

Do your part by following a few simple tips for Snow Control this winter:

  • Ensure snow removal equipment has clear access along your street.
  • When snow is forecasted, please refrain from parking your vehicle on the road until streets have been cleared.
  • Be patient when roads are being cleared.
  • Use caution when snow removal equipment is on the road.

In accordance with the Good Neighbour Bylaw No. 1277, 2011:

Residential property owners shall remove all snow or ice from all sidewalks bordering the real property within 24 hours from the cessation of a snowfall or storm event which caused such accumulation.

Commercial property owners shall remove all snow or ice from all sidewalks bordering the real property no later than 10:00 AM each day.

No person shall deposit snow, ice or other material removed from sidewalks, boulevards, lanes, or private property onto Town property or highways.

A fine of $500 will be levied to anyone depositing snow or ice on Town property or highways.

On October 3, 2016 Town Council adopted the amended Traffic Bylaw No. 1256, 2009 to allow Operational Services to tow vehicles.  Attempts will be made to contact the owner of any vehicle parked in such a way that impedes with snow removal prior to towing.  This will allow Operational Services to provide residents with a more effective and efficient snow/ice removal service.  Traffic Bylaw will be enforced as follows:
 

Section 12, subsection 12
“Where the clearance is less than twelve (12) feet between stopped or parked vehicles to ensure that snow or ice removal equipment has free passage on a street.”

Section 7, subsection 1
“Any vehicle unlawfully occupying any portion of a street or public place, or otherwise in contravention of any section of this bylaw, may be removed, detained, or impounded by order of the CAO or his designate, or a Bylaw Enforcement Officer. A removal fee in the amount of actual costs including towing fees, an impoundment fee in the amount of the actual cost paid to a commercial storage facility or tow yard for each day or part of a day for which the vehicle is impounded, and a 10% administration fee based on costs of towing and storage, shall be paid by the owner before release of the vehicle and such fees may be recovered by sale of the vehicle at public auction not less than 30 days after the date of impoundment, or by action in a court of competent jurisdiction.”

The Town of Osoyoos thanks you for your cooperation.  Winter Safety is everyone's responsibility.

Help us help you, make winter safe for everyone.
