Winter 2018/2019 - Snow Removal

The Town of Magrath does not remove snow from sidewalks adjacent to private property. This is the responsibility of the property owner. If by chance your sidewalk is cleared it is because of a “Snow Angel” in your neighborhood and does not mean that it will be cleared for you through the whole season.

Remember, when clearing snow from your driveways or sidewalks to shovel the snow onto your own property or boulevard and not onto the roads. This will allow for proper drainage and will help to avoid ice patches forming on roads and sidewalks. Thank you for your co-operation!
