Residents are being reminded about parking their cars and cleaning the snow on their property and along their sidewalk this winter.

BRANT COUNTY - Residents in Brant County are being reminded to not park their cars on streets between 4:00 am to 7:00 am.

Supervisor of Enforcement and Regulatory Services for the County of Brant, Greg Bergeron says they want to make sure the streets are clear and drivers are safe.

"We need to restrict on-street parking during these early morning hours to ensure we are able to clear streets effectively when it snows. We want to ensure motorists can get to work safely after a snow fall and have the streets in the best condition possible. The County will have Municipal Enforcement Officers out checking and we don't want you to get a ticket. Thank you for your understanding and cooperation."

The County also says that when there is snowfall to clear the sidewalks in front and along your property.

"Clearing and removing snow and ice from your sidewalks is required and the neighbourly thing to do. Even a small amount of snow and ice can be dangerous for pedestrians. We understand that some residents may find it difficult to remove snow and ice from their sidewalks. At the County, we have a program where you can request help from a Snow Buddy. It is intended for people who are elderly and adults who require additional assistance."

The County has a Snow Buddy program for children ages 12 and up and they're looking for Snow Buddies to join them this winter. They're recruited to help seniors and those who need help shovelling snow, which helps seniors continue to live independently in their homes, as it's seen as an important service to the community. 

For those participating in the program, they can either choose to volunteer or be paid for their work based on the conditions.
