The Town of Kingsville’s Winter Control policies are in effect from November 15 to April 15 each year, during which time there is no on-street parking permitted between midnight and 6:00 am.

To facilitate snow removal, the Town also asks residents to remove any portable items, such as basketball nets, from roadways and sidewalks. This help our plows remove snow safely and effectively, and prevents potential damage to property.

Vehicles parked on the street may be ticketed for $75.00 or towed, and portable items may be removed and stored. The owner is responsible for any towing or storage charges.

Our snowplows must follow an essential order to snow removal for safety reasons and Provincial service delivery standards. Roads are classified using traffic counts and speed limits. To summarize, streets and sidewalks will be attended to in the following order:

  1. High Priority Roads: Class 3 roads include main roads and arterial roads. 
  2. Rural Roads: Class 4 roads are high speed and subject to drifting snow.
  3. Local Roads: Class 5 roads found in subdivisions and urban areas.  
  4. Sidewalks: Accumulations of 8cm or more must be attended to within 48 hours after the event. 

The Town thanks you for your patience and cooperation during the winter months. It can be challenging to plow municipal routes, sidewalks and parking lots. Adherence to our winter control policies helps us ensure our roads are safe for public travel.
