Clear around meters, city asks

Record snowfall has led the City of Red Deer to make yet another request of residents.

Record snowfall has led the City of Red Deer to make yet another request of residents.

On Friday, the city asked for the public’s assistance in clearing snow for meter readers to access residential electric meters and water meter remotes.

This will aid in facilitating accurate readings and for meter reader safety, the city said.

Meters and remotes are generally located on the back of homes, but placement will vary.

Earlier this week, the city announced that as of Monday, and until further notice, all residents are asked to put their garbage and recyclables on their front curbs because the collections are behind. The trucks have been getting stuck in back alleys because of the snow, which has become slushy with warmer temperatures.

Earlier, the city also asked residents to refrain from shovelling snow onto fire hydrants.

A full plow of residential streets began this week, and is expected to take over a month to complete.
