There is still a lot of snow on the ground, which can lead to street and property flooding if temperatures rise quickly and the snow melts quickly.

Residents can reduce their risk of property flooding by moving snow away from their foundation and ensuring there is a drainage path to the nearest catch basin on the road. If safe, you are encouraged to clear ice and debris clogging the catch basin on your street for proper water flow away from your home and neighbourhood.

Year-end financials for the 2018 fiscal year yield a budget deficit of $ 3.02 million – a 0.62% variance of the overall $490.63 million City budget.

“The deficit was largely due to greater costs overall for items such as fuel and solid waste handling, as City revenues were slightly under what we targeted,” says Clae Hack, Director of Finance.

The City is notifying people who have experienced frozen water connections or frozen pipes on their property to take preventative action. Currently 80 homes are reported to have no running water due to frozen connections.

Following the coldest February in 80 years, there is very deep ground frost that can freeze pipes that are not insulated or used often.

The City has staff working overtime and contractors helping people thaw their water connections. Where there is no temporary connection available from a neighbour, bottled water is available.
