Each winter, the MD’s Transportation department provides residents an opt-in snowplow flag service that allows their driveways to be cleared following a snowfall.
Snowplow flags can be purchased at the Slave Lake and Flatbush municipal offices during regular business hours, and at the Smith Library on Tuesday from 12:30pm to 6:30pm, Wednesday from 12:30pm to 3:30pm, and Thursday from 1pm to 5pm.
To participate in this program, simply download and complete the waiver of liability at mdlsr.ca/snowplow-flags, then submit it to the MD administration office in Slave Lake along with payment via cheque, Interac or cash for every snowplow flag you wish to purchase. Each snowplow flag costs $42.50 plus GST each (or half price for seniors), and is good for one instance of snow clearance.
When you require your property to be cleared of snow, just place a purchased flag at the end of your driveway to indicate that the service is requested. Under normal conditions, this service is fulfilled 3 to 4 days following a snowfall. Please keep in mind that municipal roads take priority.
