The Town of Gore Bay provides residents with a high level of snow removal services. Whether it’s reducing the ice on roads, removing snow from roads or clearing it from paths and sidewalks, the Town works to ensure residents and visitors can travel safely.
To facilitate the removal of snow from sidewalks and to prevent damage to private property, residents are required not to place cars, fences, posts, hedges, shrubs, driveway curbs or other obstructions on the road allowance. The Town will not be responsible for damage to items placed on Town property by property owners.
Pursuant to Parking Regulations within the Town of Gore Bay By-law No.2013-30 Section 9.0 “No person shall park a vehicle on any highway under the jurisdiction of the municipality, between the hours of twelve o’clock in the morning (12 am) and eight o’clock in the morning (8 am), during the period from the first (1st) day of November in one (1) year until the last day of March in the next year, except physicians on emergency calls and operators of authorized emergency vehicles”.
This ensures that the Town can completely remove snow from the streets from a snow event.
Vehicles in violation of By-law 2013-30 will be towed.
