TOWN OF EDSON Town of Edson

Office Hours
Public Information & Notices 2014 8:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m.

Monday to Friday


The Town of Edson is currently considering implementing designated snow routes and is seeking public input.
Cars parked on the priority routes not only significantly slow down the plowing operations, but they hinder operators from being able
to do a thorough clearing job.
Designated snow routes would allow the Town to declare a “Snow Event”, allowing Peace Officers to be able to ticket and tow cars
along that route after an 8 hour notification period. The snow route signs would be posted year round, but only enacted once a certain
level of snowfall is reached. At that time there would
be no parking on those streets for 72 hours.
A number of questions have been brought up
regarding the proposed plan including:
& How much time should there be between
declaring a “Snow Event” and ticketing?
& Fine amounts?
& What would be the best notification process for a
“Snow Event”?
& Do you feel designated snow routes are
This is a preliminary plan and administration is still
reviewing all options.
If you have any answers to the above questions or
any questions or concerns please send an email to with the title ‘Feedback -
Designated Snow Routes’

general information on the Town of Edson’s current
snow plow/removal policies and the proposed
designated snow map route.

The Town of Edson, Alberta Environment and Sustainable Resource Development and Yellowhead County are in the process of
developing a community protection plan for the Town of Edson which includes a 10 km radius around the town site. This includes
assessing the threat of wildfire.

As a part of this process an open house will be held at the Edson Fire Hall on October 9 from 6:30 pm to 8:30 pm for both Edson
residents and Yellowhead County residents surrounding the Town of Edson. Refreshments will be provided.

There will be special presentations on wildfire trends, community protection planning, sprinkler planning, as well as what individual
homeowners can do to help protect their property.
