In Case You Missed It
It's beginning to look a lot like
The first bout of the winter season has arrived in the North Okanagan, with Environment Canada forecasting flurries for the rest of today (Thursday) and ending overnight. With this, it is time to adjust our habits to meet winter conditions.
The City of Vernon asks motorists to please slow down, give themselves more time to reach their destination, and have patience as they navigate wet roads and slippery sections.
“City of Vernon snow clearing equipment and personnel are ready for the season and trucks are out across the city today,” said Ian Adkins, Manager, Roads, Drainage & Airport. “Our crew's clear roads, lanes, and cul-de-sacs on a priority basis, according to the City’s Snow and Ice Control Policy.”
- Priority 1 Roads - arterials, collectors, bus routes, school zones, and selected problem areas
- Priority 2 Roads - all remaining roads except lanes and cul-de-sacs
- Priority 3 Roads - lanes and cul-de-sacs
Each snow and ice event is different, so depending on the scope and length of the snow event, it could take crews up to 72 hours to reach all portions of the City, once the snow has stopped falling. If the snow continues to fall, crews may be required to return to Priority 1 routes to keep our city moving.
Citizens are reminded that sidewalks adjacent to residential and commercial properties are the responsibility of the resident or tenant. It’s important these areas are kept clear for the safety of everyone who uses them.
When shoveling sidewalks and driveways, please do not pile snow on travel lanes, storm drains, fire hydrants, or bus pickup/drop-off areas, as these create issues for travel and safety concerns for the community.

We expect to have this property ready to market by next week - but don't expect it to last! Check back to the listing as assets are added to know if it may be the home for you before it goes "live" on the MLS®.
