KELOWNA - With winter officially behind us, the City of Kelowna would like to thank all the 2014/2015 Snow Busters, who were nominated for helping their neighbours by clearing snow from driveways and sidewalks.
Congratulations to the 2014/2015 draw winners who received Kelowna Rockets tickets for their community contribution:
December – Rick Given
January – Caleb Musfelt-Lycar
February – Mike Grant
March - Chris Arndt
Although spring has just started, the street sweepers are already more than halfway through clearing winter debris. Residents are reminded to watch for signs indicating that sweeping will be taking place in their neighbourhood. As a clean sweep needs cooperation, residents are asked to move their vehicles and portable sports equipment, including basketball hoops and hockey nets, off the road. This helps crews efficiently clean the street by ensuring the sweepers can reach right to the curbs.
Signs may be up longer than 24 hours prior to sweeping depending on weather conditions and available sweepers.
Residents are also encouraged to sweep the debris from sidewalks and boulevards out to the curbside so that it can be picked up too.
All roads in the City’s maintenance area are anticipated to be swept by mid-May, weather permitting.
