Driveway Clearing Program


Anyone who is a property owner and resides within the Lac Ste. Anne County and requires the services of the County Public Works Department to clear the snow in their driveway must purchase a snowplow flag in advance at various outlets throughout the County.


The charge is $25.00 per flag, per clearing. This means one (1) flag will be used each time you request snow removal. The $25.00 fee provides snowplowing from the road to the residence only. For snowplowing services with no flag (call in), the cost will be $40.00 paid via credit card at the time of the call. Additional clearing and/or custom snowplowing requirements are to be requested through the Public Works Department at the County office and will be charged at a rate of $80.00 per hour with a minimum charge of one (1) hour.

Please note that your approach and driveway must be a minimum of 22 feet wide, with no obstacles and have a clearance of 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 three (3) days, therefore plowing of driveways would not normally occur until the fourth (4 th ) day or later. Other arrangements should be made if you require your driveway plowed sooner.
