City of Red Deer will temporarily close its snow storage sites to private contractors beginning today.
The snow dumps will be closed at 6 p.m. because the city needs the space to dispose of snow being scooped off transit routes and collector roads.
A meeting has been set up by the city with Alberta Environment to discuss finding an interim site for contractors for the rest of the winter.
Commissionaires will be posted at the city’s two snow storage sites to answer questions and manage incoming loads. The city plans to contact all registered snow storage facility users to notify them of the change.
