City considers aligning snow removal with garbage pickup schedule

The City of Williams Lake is proposing to align snow removal with the garbage and recycling pickup schedule.

In order to increase the effectiveness of snow removal in residential areas, the City of Williams Lake is proposing to align snow removal with the garbage and recycling pickup schedule, and restrict parking streets for a 24-hour period the day preceding the scheduled garbage pickup.

For example, if an area has garbage pickup on a Tuesday, street parking is not permitted on Monday, the city explained in a press release Friday, suggesting vehicles parked on the street interfere with the proper cleanup of snow, and those found doing so will be towed.

This change would limit the impact on most residential areas to only one set day a week, and allow snow removal crews to have these areas completely cleaned so that the garbage containers can be placed on the street for the day of their pickup, the city said.

Snowplowing will continue to be done as needed.

A public forum on the proposed changes will take place at 6 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 28 in council chambers at city hall.

All residents are encouraged to attend to learn about the proposed change and to provide feedback.

The city welcomes all comments on the proposed change.

Comments can be e-mailed to bylawenforcement@williamslake.ca, or written comments can be dropped off at city hall.
