Upcoming Significant Weather Event

Significant Weather Event – As per Regulation 239/02 of the Municipal Act 2001, an Ontario municipality may declare a significant weather event when a weather hazard is approaching or occurring and has the potential to pose a significant danger to users of the highways in which they have authority over. See map below for roads in which North Glengarry has authority over.

This declaration suspends the standard timelines required for municipalities to meet their winter maintenance objectives until the municipality declares the significant weather event has ended. In each case, during the course of a declared significant weather event, the standard for addressing winter maintenance is to monitor the weather and to deploy resources to address the issue starting from the time that the municipality deems it appropriate to do so. When the municipality has declared the event has ended, the standard timelines for winter maintenance activities will begin.

North Glengarry may declare a significant weather event when the weather forecast, or actual weather condition includes one or more of the following conditions:

  • Significant snow accumulation during a 24-hour period,
  • Ice formation that occurs with no warning from the weather forecast,
  • High winds leading to large snow drifts,
  • Cold temperature when de-icing operations will not be effective.

North Glengarry wishes to note that the declaration of a significant weather event is not notice of a reduced level of service or a road closure. The declaration is to notify the public that due to the current or forecasted conditions, caution is to be observed when travelling on North Glengarry roads and sidewalks and that it may take longer than usual to bring the condition of the roads and sidewalks back to a state of repair.

North Glengarry will notify the public that a significant weather event has started and or ended in the following ways;

  • North Glengarry website
  • Social Media (i.e. Facebook, Instagram)

Roads Need Study

The Township recognizes that in order to sustain services for its residents and for the competitiveness of its businesses, agriculture and industry, it must manage the Municipality's assets cost effectively.

For this reason, the Municipality completed a Road Needs Study in 2021.

Open in a new window to view our Road Needs Study Report

The Study will provide the Municipality with a capital plan in order to manage the road network over the next five years.

The purpose of the Road Needs Study is to inventory and assess the road network within the Municipality from which a financial program for the maintenance and capital improvements can be derived.

The goals of the Road Needs Study are to:

  • Inform Council on the existing conditions and needs of their road system.
  • Formulate a cost-effective long term maintenance and construction strategy within budgetary limitations.
  • Provide a projection of the future adequacy of the road system.
  • Provide a suggested year by year work plan for Council.
  • Provide recommendations on fleet complement and replacement schedule.
  • List repairs and studies necessary for equipment housing.
