Late in the evening on Sunday, Oct. 7 and early Monday morning saw the first snowfall which managed to stick in Melfort.

Gerald Gilmore, the director of Melfort’s Works & Utilities Department, told northeastNOW all roads will be plowed and open accordingly in the winter, but the main roads will be the city’s top priority.

“The highways (36 and 41) are very important to us,” Gilmore said. “We’re responsible for all our highways and corporate boundaries and we want to make sure provincial traffic flows through our community smoothly and safely.”

Main Street, Park Ave., and Brunswick Street are considered priority roads in town.

The City of Melfort encourages drivers to park their cars off the streets if possible during snow season to help city equipment navigate through the roads.
