Regina residents encouraged to take part in winter road operations survey

The City of Regina is encouraging residents to provide feedback on winter road operations such as snow removal and street plowing prioritization.

The city says they are reviewing the winter maintenance policy, along with service levels, costs and impacts of winter operations. Residents are encouraged to take part in an online survey, where the results would be used to develop recommendations to council later this year.

City spokesperson Chris Warren says that the best people to voice their opinions are the people who use the roads daily.

“We understand that residents are on our roads everyday,” said Warren. “Safe modes of travel to and from work and recreational programs are very important, as well as things like access for emergency services. We just want to get some feedback from our community on how they see the prioritization of the roads.”

The City of Regina’s total budget for winter maintenance is just under nine million dollars.
