Street Sweeping Starts Early this Year 
The City’s Public Works Department has begun work to remove sand from the streets, sidewalks, municipal parking lots, and medians across the city. Due to the amount of sand used to contend with our Northern Ontario winters, sweeping operations will take several weeks to complete.

While sweeping operations have begun, they remain weather-dependent as these activities cannot take place when temperatures drop below zero degrees.

Yellow ‘No Parking’ signs are posted on the streets the day prior to sweeping, and indicate the day of the week that operations are to take place. Failure to comply can result in the vehicle being towed or ticketed, and may prevent areas of the street from being cleaned.

A sweeping schedule will be posted weekly on the City’s website, which is subject to last-minute changes based on changes in weather and potential equipment break downs.

We kindly ask residents to comply with the ‘No Parking’ signs as our crews work to clean the streets, reducing the amount of sand and dust throughout the City.
