The City of Vancouver is preparing for the 2011 â€“ 2012 winter season, and are looking for some help. You can lend a hand by keeping sidewalks clear of ice and snow.
The City of Vancouver requires all property owners and occupants (tenants) to clear ice and snow from the sidewalks adjacent to their property no later than 10 am after a snowfall (7 days a week). For some seniors and persons with disabilities moving snow can be difficult and even dangerous. Not clearing sidewalks can make streets unsafe and difficult for those with mobility issues.
You and your community group can help:
By providing an unforgettable service in a time of need, you could earn community service hours, receive a thank you letter from the City and win prizes!
