Drumheller town crews have been busy this week trying to get rid of all the snow that fell on the valley last weekend.
 
"We're doing some plow and remove stuff where we're windrowing to the centre, we've got our snowblower out there and removing the snow," outlined Daryl Drohomerski, the town's Director of Infrastructure Services. "We're moving over to some of the Stage Two streets now, either plowing to the side or plowing to the middle to do some snow blowing."
 
"We're probably going to be doing this for at least the next several days," he continued. "I know we're hauling snow on Saturday just to try to get some of the piles of snow that are around town out of town."
 
It's the heaviest snowfall town crews have dealt with all winter, but Drohomerski said it's well within their capacity. He does, however, ask that people respect 'No Parking' signs on streets that are scheduled to be cleared of snow.
 
"We've driven around parked cars that have been on some of these priority routes, where they're having to go back after people move," he recalled. "It makes it easier for us and makes it easier for you afterwards because you don't have a little windrow to shovel to get your vehicle off the street."
