Clean sweep for the New Year

City crews work New Years Day removing snow from city streets

City workers celebrated the New Year by cleaning up the city streets following the recent heavy snow fall and frigid temperatures.

Crews could be seen Monday using special equipment to load the snow into waiting trucks after pushing the snow into rows down the centres of the streets in the days before.

The city is going to be busy throughout the week making sure everything is perfect and ready to go for the Rogers Hometown Hockey weekend coming up Jan. 6 and 7.
