Pre-storm planning underway; HRM will enforce
overnight winter parking ban until further notice

Friday, Feb. 8, 2013 (Halifax, NS) – Forecasts are calling for 25-35 cm of snow with wind gusts of up to 90 km/hr. Given this forecast, HRM will need to enforce the overnight winter parking ban for several nights and will inform residents when it has been lifted. Snow clearing crews will be out in full force during a storm. Please ensure your vehicle is off the street and not interfering with operations. Officers will be ticketing and towing vehicles obstructing snow removal.

HRM’s Emergency Management Organization reminds residents to prepare for a storm by:

The following waste facilities normally open on Saturdays will be closed tomorrow, Saturday, Feb. 9:

  • The Otter Lake Waste Processing & Disposal facilities at 600 Otter Lake Drive
  • The Household Hazardous Waste Depot at 20 Horseshoe Lake Drive
  • The Rural Refuse Depots located in Sheet Harbour and Middle Musquodoboit

HRM requests that residents remove any street obstructions such as basketball nets and organic green carts during snow clearing operations. Items hinder proper snow clearing and can result in damage to property and equipment.

HRM Recreation Services will continue to monitor conditions and will make a decision later today on Saturday’s programming.

HRM’s 311 hours of operation are 7 a.m. to 11 p.m. daily.

For more information on the parking ban and status of snow clearing operations, please visit, call 311 or follow us on Twitter @hfxgov.

Thank you for your cooperation.
