With winter storms or weather changes, often concerns with winter driving conditions start to crop up and the CSRD office begins to receive calls asking for service. This is a reminder to citizens that the CSRD does not have jurisdiction over roads within its boundaries. This includes any road issues such as: snowplowing, potholes, snowbanks, icy conditions or any other winter road-related concern.
If you have a concern or comment, please contact the relevant municipality or Provincial service contractor. We've compiled some links and contacts to make sure your information gets to the right people.
