Snow Removal Standards
It is the responsibility of the Town of Shelburne Public Works Department to provide snow removal and ice control for streets, sidewalks and public parking lots within the Town of Shelburne as well as the parking lots of Town facilities and Town-owned tenant-occupied buildings. For storms which last unusually long or result in an unusual accumulation of snow, local contractors may be called in to supplement Public Works operations.
The Town shall not take any responsibility for removing snow from private driveways nor any entrance to driveways, including snow deposited there as a result of snow removal operations. The Town is not responsible for any private structure or property damage because such is located so close to the sidewalk or the Town's right-of-way that it interferes with the clearing process.
With over 30 kilometres of roads from which to remove snow and control ice the Public Works Department has to assign priorities for winter maintenance route activity in order to maximize the effectiveness of their efforts for public safety.
The primary routes which carry large volumes of traffic, serve as major traffic flows between principal areas of traffic generation, connect major routes to other jurisdictions, and serve as emergency routes to the hospital, fire and other emergency services will normally be cleared first:
Hammond Street from George Street to South Street
George Street from Clements Street to Water Street
Ohio Road and Falls Lane
Harriet Street from King Street to Transvaal Street
Transvaal Street from Harriet Street to Water Street
Clements Street from George Street to Prince Street
Prince Street from Clements Street to Hammond Street
