    RESIDENTS ARE ADVISED THAT IT IS AGAINST THE TOWN OF BRIGUS SNOW CLEARING REGULATIONS FOR ANY PERSON/S TO PUSH, SHOVEL OR BLOW SNOW ONTO TOWN STREETS.

    THIS PRACTICE MAKES SNOW REMOVAL MORE DIFFICULT & IT CAN CREATE A DANGEROUS SITUATION FOR VEHICULAR TRAFFIC.

    ALSO, AS PER SECTION 172 OF THE MUNICIPALITIES ACT 1999 VEHICLES THAT HINDER OR IMPEDE THE PLOUGHING OF OR REMOVAL OF SNOW OR ICE FROM THE HIGHWAY MAY BE REMOVED AND BEFORE THE VEHICLE IS RETURNED TO ITS OWNER, THE OWNER SHALL PAY THE COSTS OF ITS REMOVAL AND STORAGE AS DETERMINED BY COUNCIL AND WHERE THOSE COSTS ARE NOT PAID BY THE OWNER, THE COUNCIL MAY, AFTER GIVING NOTICE TO THE OWNER SELL THE VEHICLE BY PUBLIC AUCTION TO SATISFY THOSE COST.

    WE THANK YOU FOR YOUR CO-OPERATION!
