The winter operations season is close at hand and cleared alleys and lanes are critical to perform these services and ensure public safety.
Permitting debris or equipment to accumulate and parking unlicensed vehicles on public lanes, alleys and boulevards is an offence under Traffic Regulation Bylaw 966
of the Town of Golden, as well as parking any vehicle in such as way that it obstructs snow removal or emergency vehicles. Uninsured vehicles are a liability to all other drivers and vehicles obstructing snow removal present safety hazards during winter conditions.
Work crews are now surveying all streets and lanes in the municipality for compliance. Vehicles meeting these conditions may be towed at the owner’s expense and residents having debris accumulations adjacent to their properties in lanes and alleys may be charged.
The Town of Golden thanks you for your co-operation in this matter. Have a look at our Snow Clearing Policy on our website. Go to www.golden.ca
; click on View and then Bylaws and you’ll find it amongst our other policies. Give us a call if you have any questions.
