The Township of Red Rock is appreciative of the fact there has been a large amount of snow so far this winter season and is grateful for everyone's assistance in snow removal efforts. However, pushing snow onto a roadway is illegal under the Highway Traffic Act, S 181. Please be advised that you may be ticketed for doing this as well as paying the cost to have the snow removed.
Also, please use "snow etiquette" when removing snow from your property and do not move it across the street in front of your neighbours' properties. Please keep the snow from your driveway in your own yard or on the boulevard adjacent to your property.
We thank you for your cooperation in this matter.
To the Citizens of Red Rock on Town Water:
We have had our first waterline freeze of the year. As the temperature falls again this winter, we request that you read the following and, if you believe your line may be susceptible to freezing, please do what you can to prevent it. This will reduce the cost of thawing to yourself and the Township. Over the past few years, the cost of thawing frozen waterlines has cost the Township over $50K.
Your co-operation is greatly appreciated.
