The City of Selkirk wishes to remind residents that vehicles may not be parked on City streets for more than 24 hours at a time. This is especially important during snow removal operations as parked vehicles during this period obstruct the removal of snow from the streets by City staff. While there is no parking ban, we ask that residents that have the ability to park on private property please work with us in doing so during snow removal.
Vehicles parked on City streets during this period are in contravention of the City’s Traffic By-law No. 4868 and the Streets By-law No. 3756 and may be ticketed and/or towed at the owner’s expense.
In addition, the City wishes to remind residents it is prohibited for any person to pile snow from their property or driveway onto a city street, sidewalk or boulevard OR onto a neighbours property. Snow from your property is your responsibility and if it placed elsewhere, you could be responsible for the cost of removal.
Residents who wish to remove snow from their property/driveway are responsible for having the snow hauled away. Persons wishing to haul snow from their property may contact the city to request access to the City’s snow disposal site.
Residents are also reminded that placing extension cords upon any sidewalk can interfere with the City’s snow removal equipment.
Please take notice that private driveways including windrows will not be cleared of snow by city equipment.
