The Public Works Department is involved with a wide variety of responsibilities. One of the main duties is to maintain and improve Village roads for the benefit of the traveling public.
Snow and ice removal from Village streets is a responsibility of the Public Works employees. They also clear the walkways as soon as is possible following winter storms.
Residents should ensure that snow from their driveways is not plowed or blown onto the street as this causes a hazard to other motorists. It is contrary to the Highway Traffic Act and the O.P.P. are able to issue set fines for this type of offence.
There is no overnight parking permitted in the Village of Point Edward from December 1 until April 1 of the following year from 2 a.m. to 5 a.m.
It is the responsibility of the property owner to clear snow from sidewalks adjacent to their property.
The Public Works Department tries to fill any potholes with asphalt on a regular basis. If you notice a pothole that requires attention, please contact this Department.
Permission is required from the Village of Point Edward for any curb cuts. Once approval is obtained and all related costs have been paid, arrangements can be made for the work to be done by contacting the Municipal Office (519) 337-3021.
