The Township operates snow plows to remove snow from public roadways in the winter. All roads are also patrolled by our Road Department, who assesses the safety of township roads. In the event that the roads are deemed unsafe for travel, they will be closed until the conditions are clear. Tune into your local radio station for road closures due to poor road conditions.
Winter Control Policies
There is no parking on any roadway in Innerkip and Tavistock from November 1st through April 15th from 1:30 a.m. to 6:00 a.m. If required, this time is used for snow removal operations in these areas.
Do not push snow or ice onto the road or sidewalk when clearing your driveway. This applies everywhere; in town and in the rural areas. This practice endangers the safety of the motoring public, as well as snow removal equipment and its operators. It is also in contravention of the Highway Traffic Act.
