Snow Emergency Continues In Windsor

(WINDSOR, ON) – The City of Windsor is extending the snow emergency through this afternoon. Crews continue to work on clearing roadways of snow which began to fall early Friday.

Contractors have begun to address accumulated snow on residential streets, but only one pass will be made. Plows will not clear the snow down to the pavement nor will drivers return to clear snow which was left around parked cars.

Residents with mobility issues in areas with no sidewalks will have to continue to contend with snow covered roadways.

Drivers may use municipal lots for parking free of charge until the city lifts the snow emergency.

Officials are also asking that residents do not call 311 to report any streets which have not been visited yet by plows.

Plowing is an annually budgeted expense. Windsor is reporting that the current expenditure since Friday has been at a cost of $20,000 per hour, not including salting.
