City preparing for Tuesday weather

Don't let Monday's sunshine fool you.
Periods of freezing rain are expected in Barrie beginning early Tuesday morning.
The city's winter control crews are applying salt to the city's priority roads beginning at midnight. Doing this during the day would be ineffective.
On secondary roads, material is being applied to residential street starting at 12:30 p.m.
Also, two graders were brought in Monday to cut the rutted ice packed areas on residential streets.
Priority and residential sidewalks will see a sand and salt mix that will be applied to both priority and residential routes Monday.
Remember as per the Overnight Parking Bylaw, on-street parking is not permitted from 3–6 a.m. within the Downtown Business Improvement Area, and on other city streets from 12:01–7 a.m., Dec. 1 through March 31.
This ensures the city can completely clear streets of snow and that large emergency vehicles can get down the street.
