Re. “What hap­pened to sand boxes for ice?” Let­ters, Nov. 3

City crews have filled all 150 com­mu­nity sand­boxes across the city early in Novem­ber and con­tinue to re­visit them fre­quently.

Com­mu­nity sand­boxes are a courtesy ser­vice of­fered by the City of Ed­mon­ton and avail­able at par­tic­i­pat­ing com­mu­nity cen­tres through­out Ed­mon­ton. While ev­ery at­tempt is made to keep sand­boxes filled, the first pri­or­ity of crews ev­ery sea­son is to keep ma­jor roads and side­walks clear of snow and ice to en­sure safe driv­ing, bik­ing, and walk­ing con­di­tions.

For in­for­ma­tion on the lo­ca­tion of com­mu­nity sand­boxes or the al­ways-stocked Road­way Main­te­nance Yards, visit ed­mon­ton.ca/com­mu­ni­tysand­boxes. If your lo­cal box needs filling, please call 311. Janet Teck­len­borg, Di­rec­tor, Parks and Roads, City of Ed­mon­ton
