Parking — Allan has a 72 hour parking limit on streets, according to our Traffic Bylaw. With the winter snow load, vehicles can cause problems with snow removal. We request you move vehicles and trailers to off street parking, especially after a snowfall. Snow removal policy is for primary areas first, followed by residential streets and lastly, back lanes.
Wipes in the Pipes — are not good for our sanitary sewer system, even if they do say flushable . They do not dissolve enough before getting to our pumps. To prevent back ups in your home, or the town pumps, please toss them into the trash.
