Regular road maintenance occurs in the spring and fall. Sidewalk maintenance occurs in summer months.

You can report roads or sidewalks in need of repair.

Snow and Ice

Public Works sends out plowing equipment when 5 cm of packed snow builds up on main roadways. Sanding trucks maintain slippery road sections.

Watch for snow removal signs in your neighbourhood. Do not park on the street and remove your curb ramps.

Snow and ice on sidewalks

Snow or ice build up on sidewalks is your responsibility. You must clear ice and snow from all sidewalks bordering your property (including the sidewalk area on your driveway). Snow must be removed directly after a snowfall ends.

If you own a rental property or if you are travelling/working out of Town, you are still responsible for clearing your sidewalks after each snowfall.

  • Clear snow to the bare surface of the sidewalk to prevent extra work after more snow falls.
  • Do not place snow removed from your sidewalk on to the roadway. The snow must be shovelled on to your property. Shovelling snow on to a road can result in drainage issues in the spring and may result in a fine.
  • During extreme temperatures, you may use sand to spread on an icy sidewalk bordering your property. Free sand is located in the box outside the fence at Public Works. Please bring your own container.

Snow Removal Orders

If you do not clear your sidewalks, a Peace Officer may issue an order requiring you to remove the snow and ice (including the sidewalk area on your driveway) within seven days.

Once an order has been issued, you will not receive extra warnings. You must keep your sidewalks clear of snow and ice or a contractor may be hired to remove snow and ice as necessary. Costs will be added to your property taxes. Additional fines may also be issued.  

Fines

Failure to remove snow and ice from your sidewalk can result in a:

  • $250 fine for a first offence;
  • $500 fine for a second offence;
  • $750 fine for a third offence, or subsequent offences.

Unpaid fines are collected by Alberta Registry Service at the time of Registration or Driver's License Renewal.

Snow around fire hydrants

When an emergency occurs, fire crews rely on having access to neighbourhood fire hydrants to respond as quickly as possible. Every second counts – snow build up around the hydrant can result in delays to an emergency response.

Be a good neighbour and do your part in keeping your community safe by:

  • Removing any snow or ice from hydrants
  • Clearing a one-metre perimeter around hydrants
  • Clearing a path to hydrants from the sidewalk or street
  • Avoiding piling snow on or around hydrants and ensuring they are visible at all times

For fire safety questions and concerns, contact the Stony Plain Fire Department.

Neighbourhood Plowing and Removal Schedule

If more than 10 cm of snow is packed on neighbourhood roads, Public Works will plow and remove the snow from streets. Notifications will be posted on our home page and as snow removal update. Please remove basketball hoops, driveway ramps and unattended vehicles if parked on the street.  

Back lane pickup will be performed upon completion of the residential rotation or as soon as equipment becomes available. Downtown lanes will be cleared first and other lanes will be cleared the day prior to waste collection.

Weed Control

We remove and control restricted and noxious weeds in our community. Restricted weeds are removed as they are a threat to the environment and noxious weeds are controlled to prevent rapid spreading.

We will post signs when weed spraying occurs.
