MONTREAL – The bitter cold of winter may be far from many Montrealers’ minds, but for a select few, now is the time to work on ameliorating the 2014-2015 snow removal plan.
The city of Montreal has organized a “co-creation” day on Saturday to figure out how to better coordinate snow removal operations.
Lead by Montreal City Councilor Harout Chitilian, officials are working to create an app that will tell residents when snow removal vehicles are moving down their streets.
Last year, around 5000 cars were towed in Montreal each time snow removal trucks plowed the streets.
Members of the public are invited to the event to provide input.
The discussion is taking place until 4 p.m. at the Centre de recherche informatique de Montréal (CRIM).
