The City of Owen Sound will be performing snow removal operations beginning tomorrow, Wednesday, March 4th, at 8:00 p.m.

We ask that any vehicles along the downtown core be removed from parking spaces by that time to assist with operations.

Winter overnight parking restrictions are in place. Vehicles interfering with snow removal activities may be towed. 

The areas impacted include the following streets, or sections of streets, in the downtown area:

Snow removal operations in the downtown area are an essential part of the City’s efforts to keep the streets clear and passable for residents, as well as emergency vehicles.
