SNOW REMOVAL OPERATIONS
The Township of Oro-Medonte requests the co-operation
of all motor vehicle owners in keeping vehicles from ob-
structing snow removal operations on all roads under the
jurisdiction of the Township.
The Highway Traffic Act, R.S.O., 1990, Chapter 8, Section
170, Subsection (12), prohibits the parking of vehicles in
such a manner as to interfere with snow removal opera-
Further, The Highway Traffic Act, R.S.O., 1990, Chapter 8,
prohibits any person from depositing snow or ice upon a
roadway without permission, in writing, from the appropri-
ate road authority.
Necessary action will be taken against persons contraven-
ing these Sections of The Highway Traffic Act.
The Township of Oro-Medonte would like to thank you for
If a streetlight on your street is out or needs attention,
please report it to the Transportation and Environmental
Services Department at (705) 487-2171.
IMPORTANT REMINDER ABOUT SNOW BANKS
The Transportation and Environmental Services Department crews would like to remind parents, and their children, to
avoid buildings forts and tunnels by the side of the road, as well as avoid letting children slide or snowboard on snow
banks. This constitutes a real danger for your kids.
Motorists and snow removal trucks do not always see your kids, and may not be able to brake on time. Furthermore,
snow clearing vehicles can bury your kids, into their forts, without even having knowledge of it. Please encourage your
children to play in the snow, behind the house, in a park, where their safety isn’t compromised.
Snow banks also present problems for garbage/recycling collection. For safety reasons, please place garbage containers,
bags and recycling boxes on the ground, not on top of the snow banks, and as close as possible to the road, without put-
ting the items on the travelled roadway.
The Township or Oro-Medonte Transportation and Environmental Services Department thank the public for its co-opera-
tion and assistance in keeping children, and workers, safe during the winter season.

the barrier-free accessibility into a building and the
energy efficiency of that building.
