Winter Storm Response

Contact Us


During the winter months we typically see periods of heavy snow fall here in Saugeen Shores.  The Infrastructure & Development Department will assess the rate of snow and deploy snowplows as deemed necessary. 

In many circumstances, this results in snowplows and sidewalk plows being deployed at 3:00 am in order to get roadways and sidewalks in the safest condition possible for motorists and pedestrians.  We also deploy large trucks to haul away snow from roadways to ensure safe passage.

Unfortunately, due to the size of machinery required to plow and haul snow this can result in some noise early in the morning while we are working hard to make the roadways safe.

Please have patience and try to understand that this happens early in the morning when traffic is at its lowest and therefore the safest time of day for us to begin.

Safety must be our prime concern.  We apologize for any inconvenience that this causes.
