***********************************************

Snow Removal Notice

Please be advised that The Village of Rycroft initiates snow removal work when approximately 15cm or 6inches of snow has accumulated.  An unavoidable consequence of snow plowing is the creation of snow piles.  The presence of vehicles along roads being plowed prevents piling of snow along the sides of the street, with the result that larger piles are created before and/or after the vehicle.    

Village staff attempt to push snow into areas which cause minimal problems, however, in order to allow the snow removal to proceed in a timely fashion and without the necessity of leaving piles of snow around vehicles, the Village would ask that residents remove all vehicles from the streets to allow staff to complete plowing operations when heavy snowfalls occur or are expected.
