To ensure everyone is safe during icy and snowy winter conditions, the City of Lethbridge asks home owners to clear any snow, ice or other debris which has been deposited on the sidewalk next to their property within 24 hours.
Have elderly neighbours? Why not be a snow angel and help shovel their sidewalks too!
Need sand for your sidewalk?
The City of Lethbridge has two locations where you can get free sand for slippery sidewalks:
- At the North Lethbridge Recycling Station along Stafford Drive, north of Scenic Drive.
- At the West Lethbridge Recycling Station on the corner of University Drive West and Bridge Drive West.
If you would like to use this sand on your sidewalk please bring along a bucket or bag and a shovel to aid in loading.
What happens if you don't keep your sidewalk clear?
You may receive a notice requiring that your sidewalks be cleared. Failure to comply may result in a first offence penalty of $50, a second offence of $100 and a third offence of $150.
