Property owners and occupants in New Westminster are reminded that the City’s Street and Traffic Bylaw No. 6027, 1991 requires snow and ice to be removed from sidewalks abutting their property by no later than 10:00 am of the day following a snowfall event.
When clearing sidewalks:
- Sidewalks should be clear of snow and ice the full length and width and down to bare concrete to ensure accessibility for all citizens.
- Please do not shovel onto the street.
- Please do not use table, rock salt, or a sodium based product as it will damage the surface of the sidewalk. Suitable de-icing products are available for purchase at local retailers.
