Snow Removal

Brazeau County will maintain municipal roads in a safe and passable condition. Winter road maintenance services are not intended to eliminate all hazardous conditions at all times, but rather intended to assist vehicles which are properly equipped for winter driving while being operated in a manner consistent with good winter driving practices.
