Bylaw Services Weekly Update Oct. 23 – 29, 2017

(Fort McMurray, AB – October 20, 2017) – Winter Maintenance Zones (WMZ) are relaxed for the week of Oct. 23 – 27. This means that residential on-street parking will be permitted until WMZs are activated by the Municipality.

When winter maintenance is required, on-street parking will be unavailable from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. on the day that your zone is active. This will allow Municipal crews to clear a safe path for residents, emergency vehicles and Municipal equipment. 

Residents can identify their zone and subzone by checking the signage along their residential street, or by reviewing the updated maps or the Find Your Zone tool at rmwb.ca/snowplow

Photo radar vehicles will be located near the following areas for week of Oct. 23 – 29, 2017:

  • Alberta Drive
  • Franklin Avenue
