Fort St. James Public Works is ready for another winter season and is asking that residents also prepare for the snowy conditions that lie ahead.

Residents should pass with care. Slow down and when passing vehicles, make eye contact if possible.

Find an alternate route if you find yourself behind a winter service vehicle.

Seniors should let the district office know where they live so that they’re property can be plowed by Fort St. James Public Works.

Fort St James Public Works has amended their schedule from 7 am to 5:30 am to allow more time to plow city roads.

Dave Birdi, city counsellor says that Public Works is prepared and they are a hardworking crew. “They care about the community and work for everyone’s safety.”
