Town of Ponoka Dec. 22 snow, ice control update

The Town of Ponoka says its snow and ice control crews are working hard today clearing snow, as well as salting and sanding town roadways on Priority 1 and 2 routes.

Crews are also busy clearing snow, and salting and sanding sidewalks adjacent to town-owned properties, as well as on walking trails and park furniture (benches, picnic tables, etc.) in town parks and throughout the trail system.

To report an icy intersection, back alley, or sidewalk that may need attention, please submit an online request on the town website at www.ponoka.ca.

You can also phone the town office at 403-783-4431 and town staff can help fill out the online form for you.

Under the Town’s snow and ice control policy, snow removal is based on priority routes. Once Priority 1 and 2 routes are completed, town crews begin turning their attention to snow removal in residential areas.

Please note that weather conditions and new snowfall events often require crews to redirect their attention back to Priority 1 and 2 routes.

Notification will be posted on the Town website and social media pages when snow clearing of residential zones commences. Snow clearing in residential zones is conducted on a rotational basis according to zones.

This winter, residential snow clearing will begin in Zone 3 – Central District. To see the Snow Removal Zone Map, please visit www.ponoka.ca/p/snow-ice-control-program.

The town also asks residents to keep sidewalks that border their property clear of ice and snow.
