Snow Removal Reminder

Snow has returned this winter season, and Township of Langley residents and businesses are reminded that they are responsible for keeping their sidewalks clear, for everyone’s safety.

Under the Township’s Highway and Traffic Bylaw, snow in residential areas must be removed from sidewalks and walkways within 24 hours of the first accumulation of snow.

In commercial and industrial areas, snow must be removed from sidewalks and walkways by 10:00am.

The public is also reminded that cleared snow cannot be pushed on roadways, as it may hinder vehicles. Cleared snow must remain on the property. “This bylaw is meant to protect the public, both physically and legally,” said Township Bylaw Enforcement Manager Ruby Senghera. “Ensuring people remove snow and ice from their walkways will prevent painful falls – and from incurring fines of up to $100 per day.”
