Policy Manual - Section II - Subsection VI
The cooperation of the general public is requested in order to comply with the Town of St. Anthony Snow Clearing Regulations. Residents are reminded that the Snow Clearing Regulations prohibit overnight parking, not only on the street, but also on the street right-of-way. Since a number of infractions might be noted, residents are reminded that arrangements should be made to ensure that they have a parking space clear of the right-of-way because the RCMP will be requested to issue tickets to violators which may result in a fine up to one hundred dollars ($100.00).
Also, it should be noted that it is a violation of the regulations to shove, plough, or blow snow onto any street, and similar lines may be imposed to violations.
