Vernon is underway with its annual street sweeping program.
The crews are expected to get to all the areas over the next four to six weeks.
“The Street Sweeping Program has two components: road and sidewalk sweeping; and road and sidewalk flushing,” says Chris Ovens, Assistant Manager of Public Works. “The street sweeping equipment will make two to three passes on roadways in order to remove debris. Then, flushing equipment will make a final pass, removing fine dust and particles.”
Residents are encouraged to remove vehicles from roadways when sweeping crews are in your neighbourhood to allow equipment to clean the entire roadway.
Look for signage notifying residents.
Work will begin in the low level areas and move into higher elevations.
City crews will be on shift seven days a week until the job is done.
