There may be temporary periods of impacts to water service, street parking, mail delivery, and bussing in order to complete the work as efficiently as possible. Residents in the area are encouraged to please keep an eye out for signage and additional details from the contractor throughout the season.   

Note: If you have new concrete installed on your property for less than one year, the application of ice melt may cause damage. The City recommends using sand to control ice on new concrete for the first year. Free sand and chips bins are placed around the City for you – find your closest bin location
