Summerland snow removal slow with plough out of service

Crews continuing to clear streets in Summerland

Crews in Summerland have been out clearing the snow which fell overnight on Jan. 5 to 6.

While crews were working to remove the snow from streets, the work was slowed as one of the snow plough trucks had mechanical issues. As a result, municipal staff did not expect the downtown area would be cleared on Jan. 6.

“It is anticipated that the downtown core will be cleared early tomorrow morning when parked vehicles will not impede removal efforts,” a Summerland Facebook post read.

Motorists are urged to drive with caution and to limit travel to essential trips only.

While Environment Canada did not have full weather details for Summerland, data showed Penticton received two centimetres of snow on Jan. 5, and light snow throughout the day on Jan. 6.
