A new pathway winter maintenance pilot program will be part of the city’s upcoming winter operations.
The pilot is the result of council’s annual winter maintenance review and is one of the ways the city is encouraging people in the community to stay active and explore Markham during the winter months, said the city’s director of operations, Morgan Jones.
“We recognize that families will be spending more time at home this winter due to the COVID-19 pandemic, so we are pleased to offer the pathway winter maintenance program that will enable residents to venture out for some fresh air, while adhering to physical distancing,” Markham Mayor Frank Scarpitti said.
One pedestrian pathway in each of Markham’s eight wards will be cleared of snow, salted and sanded for the duration of the winter.
