Updated November 14, 2019

Public Works will be working on snow clearing in the downtown area overnight. Please do not park overnight in the downtown core as workers will be out at midnight working to clear snow. Thank you.

Posted November 12, 2019

With the snowfall over the weekend Town graders, sanders, and snow blowers have been out, starting Monday. They are currently working through priority one listed routes and will move onto priority two listed routes afterwards. They are progressing through the priority listing as quickly as resources allow.

The standard to meet this service level is to begin within 12 hours after the end of the storm or beginning of the next workday, or earlier if accumulations reach above standard levels and conditions permit safe operations.
Highway 744 which includes Main Street portions of 102 and 104 Avenues, and portions of 101st Street, although not under Town of Peace River’s jurisdiction will be considered as Priority One. All costs associated with snow and ice management of this portion of Highway will be invoiced to the appropriate party.
