When a heavy snowfall takes place, all municipal roads are plowed first and then driveways are done the next day. If you are the “on call” list and require your driveway to be plowed, it is important that you call the first day of snowfall to advise that you would like your driveway plowed.
If you wait and call after the equipment has been out doing driveways, an additional fee will be required to have the equipment go out again.
The Township of La Vallee would like to welcome Dale Jerry, who has been hired as road supervisor/equipment operator.

Whoever said “Do it right the first time and you'll never have to do it again?” obviously never had to shovel a Canadian driveway!
