City Snow Removal Info

Each winter the Operations Department has the responsibility of maintaining approximately 100 kms of paved and gravel roads within the City of Kimberley. City Operations works hard to accomplish this in the most cost-effective manner possible while still maintaining a high level of service and safety to the public. Sanding and plowing priorities are based on volumes of traffic and steepness of terrain. City streets are generally categorized into three groups:

  • Main streets and emergency access routes with hills.
  • Other main or collector streets.
  • Local and residential streets.

The main streets and hills are completed first. This ensures that traffic can access such facilities as the schools, special care facilities, the central business area, and the ski hill area. Next completed are collector streets, which may not have steep terrain but do have heavy volumes of traffic and include Rotary Drive, Knighton Road, and Jim Ogilvie Way. Residential streets are then serviced. During weekends and statutory holidays, the city generally services only the high priority streets.

Please practice caution and defensive driving when operating a vehicle under winter conditions, and ensure that your vehicle has proper winter tires. For more information and a list of frequently asked questions please refer to the city’s website, Snow Removal and FAQs section.

Catch Basins

As the cold weather approaches, the city is asking for the public’s support by helping to keep leaves and debris off the catch basins. Please report any blocked catch basins online at or contact the Operations Department at 250-427-9660 or [email protected].
