Following a snowfall, the snow is windrowed onto City sidewalks with the intent to remove the windrows time permitting. Crews attempt to keep at least 1/2 of the sidewalk clear during this time, until the windrows are removed. This process of snow removal is designed to continue to allow parking along residential streets, while maintaining wider roadway for 2-way traffic.
As per our snow removal bylaw, residents should refrain from shoveling, moving, sweeping or cleaning any snow, ice, dirt or any other obstruction onto any street, sidewalk or lane. Doing so hampers our crews' ability to effectively remove the snow.
In areas where snow is windrowed onto the sidewalk, residents are not required to shovel their sidewalk. However, they are encouraged to shovel their driveways as soon as reasonable, to help aid snow removal crews in identifying driveways.
Click here to read the City of Warman Snow Removal Bylaw.
While not directly related to snow removal, residents are asked to be mindful of parking regulations in the City. No vehicle can remain parked in an uninterrupted fashion for longer than 48 hours. For more information, please see our traffic bylaw.
There are a number of things that homeowners can do to help our crews during the snow removal process:
1. After a snowfall, at best refrain from parking along the street. In areas where there are no front-facing driveways, crews will put out signs indicating date and time of snow removal. Residents in these areas are asked to do their best to adhere to this snow removal schedule.
2. Refrain from leaving your garbage/recycling carts out for extended periods of times before or after pickup.
3. Cleaning your driveway of snow in a timely manner will help crews identify your driveway, and increase the likelihood of windrows NOT being placed in front of your driveway.
Taxes are levied on June 1 of each year.
Yes, every residential and non-residential property owner is required to pay education taxes, including people without children in school and senior citizens. This money is forwarded directly to the Prairie Spirit School Division to operate our local schools.
The term "mill rate" can be described as the amount of tax that is paid per $1,000 of assessed property value. The city and school administrators use the mill rate to calculate the amount of property tax that is required from each property to raise the revenue necessary to operate the city and schools for the current year.
The mill rate has two components, the municipal portion and the education portion.
The municipal mill rate is established by City Council once the City of Warman budget has been approved for the year. The mill rate indicates the amount of tax you will pay for every $1,000 of assessment placed on your property.
For example: If the mill rate (municipal and school) is 17.5 mills, for every $1,000 of assessment you will pay $17.50 of taxes. Therefore, if you have a property with a taxable assessment of $100,000, your tax bill would be $1,750 plus any base or minimum taxes that would apply.
Assessment x Mill rate / 1000 = Property tax amount
Taxes are due yearly by August 31st. Any outstanding balance remaining past this date will incur a 1% charge as of the 1st of each of the following months. If taxes remain unpaid the City of Warman will undertake tax enforcement procedures. This will result in a lien being registered on the property. If taxes still remain unpaid, further enforcement procedures will be undertaken.
