Some important updates after the storm this past weekend:
Morden Park: Closed until further notice based upon the risk of falling branches and trees. Access is limited due to soft ground conditions and snow levels.
Livingston Park: Closed until further notice based upon the risk of falling branches and trees. Access is limited due to soft ground conditions and snow levels.
Stephen, Thornhill, and driveway access have been addressed. Based on the extent of damage, priority will be the 100, 200, 300 blocks of 1st through 15th, 400 block of 10th St. with main arteries to Minnewasta, Maple Leaf, EMMS and Morden Collegiate Schools. Crews will be conducting a city-wide sweep of every street over the next several weeks.
Do not park under, and limit travel (walking/biking) under or in proximity to trees with broken limbs. Children walking to school are at risk until designated routes have been addressed.
If you have a city owned tree near your property that was affected, our crews will be working diligently over the next few weeks to deal with all of the damage from the storm.
If there is damage to privately owned trees, shrubs, etc. that is the responsibility of the property owner. For Morden residents, there is room at the Willcocks Road Compost Yard if you have branches or other yard refuse. Visit mordenmb.com/city-services for more details.
Please note that our crews will be cleaning up Stephen Street and North Railway this week, clearing sidewalks and hauling away snow.
This week was supposed to be fall clean up, however this has been delayed because of the storm. Fall clean up will be pushed to the last week of October to give everyone (including our crews) a chance to deal with the storm debris.
