Snowplowing/Grading Policy

 Policy Statement and Guidelines:

  • When deemed necessary by the CAO or designate, snow removal coverage will be provided 7 days a week to address a significant or extreme snow event.
  • If the weather is severe and the operators are at risk, Kneehill County will halt plowing operations.
  • Snowplowing of County road allowances will not follow School Bus Routes.
  • Windrows created on driveways as a result of this operation are the landowner's responsibility. However, every effort will be made to reduce a windrow left while plowing. 
  • Landowners wishing private driveways to be plowed by County machinery must complete and sign a Grading/Snowplowing Agreement - Appendix A prior to the work being commenced. Payment will be required prior to any snowplowing/grading being commenced.  Snowplowing and/or Grading rate will be set as per Master Rates Bylaw.
  • The Landowner will contact the County office in order to receive service.  Snowplowing/ grading will be completed at the discretion of the Municipality and shall not in any way interfere with the regular supply of services and maintenance to the municipality at large.
  • Snow fence – County road crews install snow fencing in the late fall months to help reduce drifting snow onto county roads only. The County is permitted under the provincial Public Highways Development Act to enter private property to install and maintain snow fencing as required. Crews will not enter lands where obvious farming is underway, for example, active pasture land with grazing livestock or fields with a crop waiting to be harvested. Every effort is made to contact affected landowners in advance of the installation.
