It is that time of the year. Snow has melted leaving behind a wintery mess. For the Theresians of Sainte-Thérèse it means that the City has undertaken its spring cleaning. This operation led by the Public Works, Parks and Buildings Department allows will work so that the residents find a clean, pleasant and safe environment in order to make the most of the summer season.
The teams carry out, among other things, the sweeping of streets, medians and cycle paths, as well as the cleaning of the Village. Mechanical sweepers remove rocks and debris that have accumulated on the ground during the winter. This operation can be repeated several times in order to obtain the desired cleanliness. In addition, swings have been installed in the parks to the delight of the young Theresians. The skating rink strips will be removed as soon as the ground conditions allow it. A little later in the season, the marking of cycle paths and the installation of bollards will follow.
“I salute the work of our employees in the field. Thanks to them, we find the joy of playing in the park, cycling and walking on well-maintained roads. We are all excited to take advantage of the good weather that is setting in, thank you to all the teams who make these moments even more pleasant,” said the mayor of Sainte-Thérèse, Mr. Christian Charron.
Damage caused by snow removal
With snowmelt, it is possible to see damage to property or land caused by snow removal operations. If this happens, citizens must notify the Public Works, Parks and Buildings Department before May 1, so that it can proceed with the repairs: By email at [email protected]‑therese.ca and by phone at 450 434-1440, ext. 2100. The necessary verifications will be carried out to confirm that the damage was caused by municipal equipment or by that of the company hired by the City in the northern sector of Sainte-Thérèse, and not by a private snow remover, in which case they would not be not covered.
The pothole repair operation is also underway in Sainte-Thérèse. Teams fill with cold asphalt the holes that have formed in the roadway over the spring freeze and thaw. Potholes are a direct result of the Quebec climate and they resurface every spring. The most convenient way to report a pothole is to use the Voilà!
