Operations begin as does creation of snow wall at the dump

Well it was great while it lasted, our extended fall season. I just returned from a few days in New York City where the temperature was so mild I was walking around wearing only a t-shirt. Winter is back with a vengeance, but our City of Côte Saint-Luc Public Works Department is on the job.
 
Over the last couple of years we have taken measures to keep better tabs on our snow dump on Marc Chagall Avenue. At times like this there is a lot of activity there, yet we want to do everything possible to keep the noise level as reasonable as possible for the benefit of those who live close by. We want to avoid any tail gate banging.

Once again we are appointing a yard attendant who will remain at the dump until 10 p.m. during times of snow activity. In addition, the trucks and ploughs will begin building a snow wall almost immediately. This serves as a de facto sound barrier.
 
Since we  were quick to start clearing our streets before some other cities, our contractor has been able to provide us with three blowers at one time, a rarity. This is great news for us, as they started to blow the snow quickly.  

"Although our streets are looking pretty good, please drive carefully when venturing outside of Côte Saint-Luc," cautions Public Works Director Beatrice Newman. "Give yourselves enough time to get to where you need to be."
