The City of Cranbrook hopes there are plenty of residents who want to help remove snow around the community.
An open house 5 PM to 7 PM Tuesday at the Manual Training Centre will focus on the municipality’s snow clearing operations.
Communications Officer Chris Zettel says this is the first time a forum like this has been held.
“Its going over a number of things that we do, what our priority routes are like and why,” Zettel says. “Getting people to understand how operations change when we have extraordinary snow events like we did last year.”
Zettel says the Canadian Mental Health “Snow Angels” team will also discuss their service.
He hopes a number of residents are willing to help their neighbours.
“They have volunteers that help clear the snow from the driveways, the walkways, sidewalks of some of those residents who just might not be able to do so themselves,” Zettel says. “People who are available to help, there’s a chance for you to sign up and volunteer.”
Residents can learn more about volunteer programs for equipment signup and registration for extraordinary snow events.
