Now that Drumheller and area has survived its first harsh taste of winter, life is starting to return to normal, and that means cleaning snow from where it doesn't belong.
Greg Peters is Drumheller's Director of Protective Services, which is in charge of making sure people clear their sidewalks of snow.
"Everybody's been pretty good so far," he told 99.5 Drum FM. "It happened on Friday and we usually don't give people a hard time on the weekends about it, but everybody's been pretty good (and) we appreciate the compliance."
"There is the odd one we're going to follow up on, but by and large, most people were pretty good," he elaborated. "Nothing's perfect (and) there's always a few that aren't compliant, but for the most part people are pretty good."
Town bylaws give residents 24 hours from the end of a snowfall to clean their sidewalks, and that means all the way down to the pavement, emphasized Peters.
"How do you make people understand universally a 'little bit' of snow? Everybody's got their own interpretation, but if it's down to the pavement, we would like it down to the pavement to avoid any issues and that's pretty easy to understand," he argued.
If you caan't clean your sidewalk yourself for one reason or another, Peters asks that you call him at Town Hall, 403-823-1363 and he'll put you in contact with someone who may be able to help.
