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.
The City of Salmon Arm, the City of Revelstoke, the District of Sicamous and the Town of Golden are responsible for snow clearing within their municipal boundaries.
