The County employs a dedicated snow removal crew, which clear and maintain over 3,600 kilometres of paved and gravel roads.
Reasonable efforts are made to clear all rural roads within five days following a significant snow fall. Multiple snow fall events may alter the snow clearing cycle and require extended hours or days to complete.
