Snow Removal at City Hall


While the last thing you might want to think about is snow, this winter has been especially rough for many Calgarians. The snow was never ending, and getting around can be challenging.
The City of Calgary Standing Policy Com mittee on Transit and Transportation has called for research on improving snow removal.
