District of Barriere residents have been inquiring as to what the town will be doing with all of the snow piled along the roadways within the community?
“Regarding the current winter roads maintenance, the district’s current contract does not include provision for removal and/or trucking of excess snow from resident’s or district property,” advised district CAO Bob Payette last Monday, “In order to keep costs reasonable to taxpayers snow will be stockpiled in front of properties on the District owned right-of-way. Snow storage height and line of site issues will be a priority and be dealt with accordingly.”
The district is also reminding residents to avoid parking insured vehicles on public road right-of-ways when snow removal is anticipated. It is expected that the blade of a snowplow will reach beyond the paved surface of the roadway for adequate snow removal.
“We thank the citizens of Barriere for their patience and understanding as we continue to strive to keep our roads and walkways clear of snow and ice,” said the CAO.
Any concerns regarding District of Barriere roads should be directed to the winter roads maintenance contractor, Borrow Enterprises at 250-674-8776, or the District of Barriere office at 250-672-9751.
