Should Regina citizens be clearing their sidewalks after a major snowfall?
It is a question which will be debated Monday night as Regina city council sits down for their monthly meeting.
Councillors Lori Bresciani and Andrew Stevens have put forward a motion suggesting fines should be issued for those who don’t clear their sidewalks 48 hours after a snowfall.
The motion says the city would clear a sidewalk that isn’t shovelled within 48 hours of a snowfall with the property owner being sent a bill with a repeat offender getting a fine and having to pay the price of snow removal.
If a bylaw is crafted and passed, it would take effect next winter.
Council will also be discussing a feasibillty study aimed at creating either an overpass or underpass at the Ring Road and Winnipeg because of trains that disrupt the flow of traffic much to the anger of many. They are also formally expected to approve six retail permits for legal marijuana stores. Those six permits were allotted to the city by the provincial government.
