Whether it is snow, ice or rubbish, the District appreciates property owners that honour their obligation to keep the sidewalk adjacent to their property clear and safe for pedestrians.

The District of Lillooet's Nuisance Bylaw requires that all residents and businesses are responsible for removing snow and ice from sidewalks that border ttheir property within 10 hours of snowfall (this is 10 hours from the time it begins to accumulate). Shoveled snow and ice must be placed within the confines of your property, not on the street.

This is important to ensure pedestrians can safely get to their destination – in particular, people with limited mobility such as the elderly and disabled, those who use motorized scooters, or parents with strollers. A fine of $100 may be issued to those who don’t comply with the bylaw.

This is a continuing obligation. Snow and ice must be re-cleared as it re-accumulates.

The Department of Public Works for the District of Lillooet welcomes your request for information, service, feedback, or comments in-person, by phone, email, or via the Complaint Registration Form.
