What is a Significant Weather Event?
A municipality can declare a Significant Weather Event when a weather hazard is approaching or occurring and has the potential to pose a significant danger to users of roads and sidewalks. This will allow Township operations additional time to address the significant weather event and remain in-compliance with the Minimum Maintenance Standards regulation (Ontario Regulation 239/02 as amended).
