The City of Brandon will do its best to advise the public in advance of City-wide snow clearing events, however, residents can greatly assist in the City’s efforts by paying attention to local media following significant snowfalls. Residents are also asked to mark any obstructions that may be present within their driveways or on the boulevard/right-of-way with reflective markers to ensure any potential damage by clearing machinery can be avoided.
