Snow scooping request

Letter writer takes issue with timing of Castlegar Snow removal

On the morning of January 14 there were crews out doing snow removal on Columbia Avenue. I do very much appreciate our city staff and crews who do their best for our city. I was not pleased with the time of day that was chosen, if this was done in the evening or early morning as opposed to our rush hour, then the traffic congestion wouldn’t have been standing still for long periods of time.


Advance notification on the local radio stations, newspaper or signs posted on Columbia Avenue would have been much appreciated and would have allowed motorists to make alternate plans.


Please consider this for the next snow removal.
