Weekly Budget Articles Explain the Budget Process
To help residents stay informed as Council prepares the 2021 municipal budget, the Town is sharing a series of articles to explain and simplify the budget process and the steps we take each year. Articles will be posted each week on the Town website: highriver.ca/2021-budget. Links will also be shared on the Town’s social media channels.
Winter Watch
The Town’s snow removal plans for the coming winter months were endorsed by Council at its October 26 meeting. A contractor will continue clearing downtown sidewalks. The Happy Trails system will be cleared weekdays after a snow event ends and on the first day after a weekend. Snow removal crews will focus on cleaning snow from driving lanes rather than plowing from curb-to-curb making it faster to clear streets.

This winter the Town will conduct a pilot project on downtown streets. Environmentally friendly beet juice brine will be applied prior to a storm to stop snow and ice from sticking to the road. Thank you to residents for your patience and please drive safely around equipment when snow clearing is in progress.
