Many residents have connected with my office today in a state of concern as the snow has fallen on the remaining piles of leaves across our Ward 2 Neighbourhoods.
Due to the accumulation of snow, Leaf Collection is on hold until conditions permit continuation of the program.
What does this mean for residents? Do nothing with your leaves.
At this point, the city's Roads, Parks & Forestry team intends to continue with the program as soon as weather conditions permit.
Please do not be concerned that the snow plows are going to displace leaves back onto your sidewalk or property.
Our Roads Staff will not be conducting a full road plow as we did not reach our trigger point accumulation. The primary roads are in good shape and we will be using both city forces and contracted services on our secondary and local priority salt routes to plow after lunch. Once this is complete additional work will be taken throughout the night to deal with any winter road conditions.
Keeping you safe and informed is a key priority right now.
I recognize that the last two years have been challenging for this city run program, we will keep working harder to and continue to do our best in meeting your expectations.
Following is a map outlining Leaf Collection in Ward 2:
- Red - Roads/ streets which still require Leaf Pickup
