Public Works Declares Significant Weather Event 
The City of Timmins Public Works is declaring a Significant Weather Event under the provisions of the Minimum Maintenance Standards for Municipal Highways (O.Reg 239).

Due to the winter storm warning issued by Environment Canada and modeling with the amount of snow forecasted, we are anticipating delays in the plowing of some city streets and roads along with most city sidewalks. City resources will be deployed when deemed appropriate.

Environment Canada is predicting a major winter storm with snow, heavy at times, and local blowing snow expected to begin tonight and continuing through Friday before tapering off Saturday evening. Potential hazards include:
• Snowfall amounts of 30 to 50 cm
• Gusty northeasterly winds resulting in blowing snow and reduced visibility

Environment Canada advises residents to consider postponing non-essential travel until conditions improve. Surfaces such as highways, roads, walkways and parking lots may become difficult to navigate due to accumulating snow.

Weather may also impact Timmins Transit service. Delays and/or cancellation of services may occur. Updates will be shared via the City website and social media.

We also remind residents that the Winter Parking Ban is in effect and parking on the street is not permitted on any day, between the hours of 11:30 pm to 7:30 am, from November 1 through April 30 unless otherwise posted.

Residents are also reminded that City BYLAW 1993-4162 does not allow a person to place snow from a person’s property onto the road or sidewalk.

We thank you for your cooperation in this matter. An additional notice will be posted to declare the end of the Significant Weather Event when the municipality determines is it appropriate to do so.
