After reviewing weather reports that the Township subscribes too, and observing the weather warnings issues by Environment Canada, the Township of Tyendinaga is declaring a significant weather event in the municipality, as defined within the Minimum Maintenance Standards Regulation Ont 239/02.
During the significant weather event, the Township of Tyendinaga is advising motorists, pedestrians and residents to use extra caution as the municipality may not be able to meet its maintenance standards for roads, and sidewalks due to the heavy snowfall expected.
The declaration will not change how or when the municipality performs its winter maintenance operations. However, it may take the municipality longer than usual to bring the roads and sidewalks back to a state of repair. Public safety is the municipality’s top priority. The Township of Tyendinaga will provide updates, when the significant weather event has ended.
Contact Public Works at 613-396-6562 if you have any issues or concerns during this significant weather event.
