Red Deerians get to share their beefs (or likes) regarding snow plowing

City is collecting public feedback through a survey and workshops

Snow removal can be a hot-button issue for many Red Deerians — so the city wants to hear public feedback on how it’s going this winter.

Residents are invited to give input on how the City of Red Deer is dealing with snow and ice through an online survey. It’s available now by visiting www.reddeer.ca/snow.

There are also four workshops planned for March, with free child care onsite for the evening sessions.

The dates are: Tuesday, March 3, at the North Side Community Centre from 6 to 8 p.m.; Wednesday, March 4, at Festival Hall from 6 to 8 p.m; Tuesday, March 24, at the Notre Dame High School gathering area from 6 to 8 p.m.; and Wednesday, March 25, at the Golden Circle from 3 to 5 p.m.

All residents who share their thoughts either online, at a workshop, or at yet-to-be-announced pop-up events will be entered to win one of two $150 Visa gift cards for participating.

The city’s public works manager, Greg Sikora, said unpredictable winter weather means there are no perfect solutions to managing snow and ice. But each year, the city’s program is evaluated for safety, effectiveness, access and costs.

Information gathered from the public will be used to develop potential program changes and improvements to snow and ice control. Recommendations will go to city council this summer.
