Town Snow Removal Operations
Crews are working hard clearing the streets from the two storms. An estimated 80 cm of snow has fallen over the past few days.
Some streets are so narrow that the only way to clear from curb-to-curb is to load it up and haul it off as there isn’t any room left to push the snow. The equipment has been put through a tough pace and unfortunately has resulted in some breakdowns. One of the sidewalk clearing machines has broken down. Parts are on order and we hope to have the unit back up and running soon. The Town has hired private haulers and additional heavy equipment as we begin the process of clearing the accumulated snow piles particularly in the Business District. We are going to be delayed with sidewalk clearing until all machines are in service again. The Town regrets the inconvenience to its residents and asks for your patience as we try to manage the best we can.
We also recognize that town plows are pushing snow back onto private driveways. The plow operator’s job is to make sure the public right of way is clear and safe. They will do their best not to inconvenience home owners excessively and we ask for your cooperation under these exceptional circumstances. The Town just doesn’t have the resources to clear driveway entrances after plowing the street. We need the help of private citizens to clear their own.
While we are trying to cope, citizens can also be helpful if you could adopt a fire hydrant or a catch basin near your home and keep them uncovered.
If you have any concerns, please contact the CAO Louis Coutinho at 902.798.6675 or the Director of Public Works Todd Richard at 902.798.6681

Windsor and West Hants sign Memorandum of Understanding
On Feb. 8, 2017 the Municipality of West Hants (WH) and the Town of Windsor announced that they have mutually entered into a Memorandum of Understanding ("MOU") . Windsor has agreed to suspend its application for amalgamation through the UARB process sending a positive and hopeful reply to its neighbors in West Hants.
The agreement between Windsor and WH outlines a framework for a new relationship that will see the two working cooperatively on shared areas of interest that will benefit all the citizens in their respective communities. The initial objectives are intended to focus on broad areas that will serve to improve access and use of resources, services and programs while generating maximum cost benefits for both municipal units.
Mayor Allen stated, "Our collective objective is to work towards a better outcome and eventual structural change that is meaningful to our citizens and community. The MOU demonstrates
willingness to work together for the good of our regional community. The Town believes that a strong partnership with West Hants is a better way to achieve the same goals."
Warden Abe Zebian commented, "We are very pleased to be able to reach this mutually beneficial agreement with our neighbors and friends in the Town of Windsor. Over the past two months we
have had discussions that served to encourage today's announcement. We look forward to a bright, cooperative and prosperous future for all the residents of our region."
Both Warden Zebian and Mayor Allen highlighted that the people of Windsor and West Hants place great value on their public services including the resources and services that are shared with each other. Both leaders expressed enthusiastic optimism about the future for the citizens of Windsor and West Hants.
