The City of Mississauga’s Driveway Windrow Snow Clearing Program opens for applications on Tuesday, August 12, 2014 with a cut-off date of Friday, November 14, 2014 at 9 p.m.
Residents who are 65 years and older in 2014 and individuals who are physically disabled can apply for the Driveway Windrow Snow Clearing Program. No able-bodied person can be living at the same residence as the applicant and the applicant must not reside on a private road or live in a high-rise, multi-unit building, condominium or within a commercial property. The cost is free or $200 depending on the applicant’s eligibility.
Driveway Windrow Snow Clearing Program
The program will provide windrow snow clearing service after every snow plowing operation. Windrow snow clearing will be approximately 3 m (10 ft) wide to allow one car to pass. As our winter maintenance operations focus on clearing major and residential roads first, it may take up to 36 hours after the end of a snow storm before windrows are cleared. Clearing to bare pavement cannot be guaranteed. The windrow clearing service will run from November 24, 2014 to March 13, 2015.
