Town of Ponoka snow removal, ice control update

Town of Ponoka snow and ice control operations are continuing this week following the snow that fell over the weekend. Crews have been clearing snow on priority routes, sanding and salting intersections as needed, and clearing sidewalks adjacent to Town-owned properties and along Town walking trails. Snow and ice control crews are also smoothing out ruts in back lanes where needed. To report an icy intersection that may need attention, please contact the Town at 403-783-4431. Town winter operations crews work in conjunction with the Alberta Ministry of Transportation, which is responsible for snow and ice control on Highways 2A and 53 in Ponoka.

Residents asked to clear sidewalks

Ponoka residents are reminded to please keep sidewalks that border their property clear of snow and ice. Keeping residential sidewalks shoveled helps protect others from slipping and falling. Town of Ponoka snow and ice control operations are conducted according to the Town’s Snow Removal and Ice Control Policy to improve safety for motorists and pedestrians and facilitate the operation of emergency services. The Town’s snow and ice control operations are kept within the Town’s annual snow removal budget which is based on average winter snowfall conditions over the past 10 years and is approved by Town Council.
