Lac Ste. Anne County offers a seasonal Snowplow Flag Program whereby any property owner or occupant within County boundaries can enlist the help of the County's Public Works department to clear snow from their private driveways following a snowfall.

County-issued snowplow flags can be purchased at participating locations for $25 each. A signed Snowplow Flag Program Application must also be submitted at the point of purchase.

Please review the program rules and download an application form below.

How the Snowplow Flag Program Works

To participate in the snowplowing program, you must purchase a snowplow flag in advance from one of the locations listed on this page. The charge is $25.00 per flag per clearing. This means one flag will be used each time you request snow removal. The grader operator will collect your flag prior to the commencement of snow removal.

PLEASE NOTE: Your approach and driveway must be a minimum of 22 feet wide with no obstacles, and must have a clearance of at least 18 feet high with no overhanging trees or wires. Otherwise the County grader(s) will NOT clear your driveway.

After a major snowstorm, opening of roads will take approximately 3 days, therefore plowing of driveways would not normally occur until the fourth day or later. Other arrangements should be made if you require your driveway plowed sooner than that.

The flag signifying a request for service must be placed on the RIGHT hand side approach shoulder near the property line (RIGHT hand side of approach - when facing the driveway from the road). Flags must be attached or pinned to a stake in a manner to facilitate retrieval by the motor grader operator. Flags placed in other locations will not be acknowledged.

For further details about the 2021 Snowplow Flag Program, please call the County’s Public Works department at 780.785.3411 (toll-free 1.866.880.5722) or email publicworks (@) LSAC.ca.

Snowplowing of any driveway will not occur without the proper flag. The $25.00 fee provides snowplowing from the road to the residence only. Please do not approach the operator, as this would pose a safety concern.

One Flag = One Clearing

The County charges $25.00 per flag, per clearing. This means one of your flags will be used each time you request snow removal. The grader operator will collect your flag prior to the commencement of snow removal.
