Slippery Conditions, and Home Sidewalk Clearing

Slippery Conditions, and Home Sidewalk Clearing

With changing weather patterns, some areas of Hinton are experiencing slippery conditions. The Town of Hinton recommends caution while driving as Town vehicles dispense traction aid, as well as while walking in areas through the community.

It is important to note that homeowners and occupants have a responsibility in snow clearing. As per the Town of Hinton’s Nuisance Bylaw (1101), a property owner is responsible for the removal of snow, ice, and other debris on all sidewalks fronting or flanking the property. In failing to remove the snow and ice, the property owner becomes liable for any accident or injury resulting or caused by such. For the safety of all persons, the Town of Hinton requests that all property owners maintain their sidewalks as necessitated by weather conditions.

Please also note that as per Bylaw 1101 (Nuisance bylaw) approved on October 6th, 2015, the disposal of snow from private lands to public lands requires expressed permission from the CAO. 

Please contact Bylaw Services at 780-865-6009 for more information.    

Don’t forget, residents can get ready to clear their sidewalks and add some traction by picking up free sand and salt mix in the lot besides the curling rink!
