Spring Street Sweeping

Street Sweeping for the 2017 season has commenced .

As the Street Sweeping crews move from neighbourhood to neighbourhood, signs will be posted in the area the day before street sweeping is expected to commence.  Residents are asked to move their vehicles from the road when street sweeping is happening in your area.  We also ask if you could kindly pass the word on to any neighbours who may not have received notification that the sweepers are in the area.

Please keep an eye out for street sweeping equipment, and use caution when travelling near them.

Please obey any "No Parking" signs.
