Despite several calls from residents who were stuck on their streets in the aftermath of this weeks’ blizzard and more than a hand full of large drifts, the City of Regina says a residential plow will not take place.
In an email from the city, officials say residential plows only take place when a snowfall event is 15 cm’s or greater.
Regina received about 10 cm’s of snow this week according to the City, however strong wind gusts around 90 km/h created large drifts on many residential streets, making life tough for some who could not get off their street due to the accumulation.
A reminder though that the City’s “snow routes” are in effect until 6:00 a.m. Friday morning.
Streets with the blue sign with a snow flake on it are considered snow routes.
Street parking is prohibited while snow routes are in effect.
