City of Ottawa wants feedback regarding snow removal, winter maintenance

By Mike Vlasveld, City News, January 18, 2021

The City of Ottawa says it wants to hear what residents think of the job its winter maintenance teams have been doing; plowing, salting and sanding local roads and sidewalks.   The City of Ottawa is reviewing its Winter Maintenance Quality Standards (WMQS), and it says residents can help out in a few different ways, here: by completing a survey, available until February 19; participating in one of four virtual workshops, January 25, 26, 27 or 28; and/or sharing an idea or question in a discussion forum.   Anyone looking to complete the survey by phone, or who might require other accessibility related accommodations, can call 613-282-2685.

(...)Issues such as climate change, accessibility, sustainability, equity and healthy living have evolved since the current standards were put in place in 2003. The 2021 review will focus on:

  • Residential roads
  • Sidewalks
  • Cycling pathways
  • Multi-use pathways for walking, cycling and rollerblading
