Ville de Québec – My City – November 2010

Quebec City is ready to face winter.

Starting November 1st, Québec City may start snow removal operations.

The City provides different tools to allow its citizens to keep informed.

From November 1st on, regulations on parking in the street during winter come into force in the entire Quebec City area.

Why?

To allow the maintenance crews to go into action at the first snowfall.

To obtain information on parking restrictions during snow removal operations, here are some ways to stay in touch…

418-641-6666 At this number, and at all times, you can obtain information on parking restrictions in your borough. The information is updated every day at7:30 AM and 4 PM.

News on snow removal operations will be posted on our website. Just visit the Québec City website’s homepage or receive the information by email or by RSS feed by subscribing to Services en ligne (“Online Services”).

NEW ! SMS Text Messaging You have a cell phone? Receive alerts on snow removal operations by texting the word “NEIGE”, to the number 23 333.

Orange warning signs (flashing indicators) The orange warning signs will be activated at least three hours prior to the beginning of a no parking period. Pay attention to the road signs accompanying the flashing indicators.

You can find out where your car was impounded by calling 418-641-6666 or by visiting Québec City’s website at www.ville.quebec.qc.ca, section Info-Remorquage (“Towing Info”).

…………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………Snow removal on private property. Not on the road!

Did you know it is forbidden to throw snow or ice on the road or on the pavement unless you have a special permit to do so?
Imagine the condition of the roads during winter season if all citizens decided to clear their entry and dump the snow on the road!
By getting a special permit, and under certain conditions, you can dump snow on the side of the road BEFORE the maintenance crews pass by.
You can obtain your snow-removal permit for 2010-2011 in any district offi ce. Its cost varies according to the area to be cleared of snow.
Not respecting these specific regulations could result in a fine ranging between 150$ and 1000$.
Information: communicate with your borough’s office or consult our website at www.ville.quebec.qc.ca.
