The City of Selkirk wishes to remind the community 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, especially during times of snow removal.
Vehicles parked on City streets for a period of over 24 hours 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 to not 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.
Once large amounts of snow accumulate, citizens 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, causing damage to both the equipment as well as extension cords.
Please take notice that private driveways including windrows will not be cleared of snow by city equipment.
All referenced By-Laws and Policies are available for viewing on our website HERE.
To prevent already shoveled snow from being plowed back into driveways, we ask that you please pile snow to the right side of your driveway. As the grader moves with the flow of traffic, snow movement will always move towards the right. Piling snow on the left side of your driveway could cause the grader to move it back into driveways.

We would like to thank everyone in advance for your cooperation and invite you to reach out if you have any questions.
