As of 8 p.m. on February 12, 2019, the Town of Aurora has declared a Significant Weather Event with respect to snow and freezing rain on sidewalks, roadways and bicycle lanes. During this this time, please anticipate that roads, bicycle lanes and sidewalks may become slippery. Proceed with caution.
The provincial government outlines Minimum Maintenance Standards (MMS) for Municipal Highways in O. Reg. 239/02. Recent changes to the MMS, allow municipalities to declare a Significant Weather Event to allow a wider window of opportunity and additional period of time for a municipality to return road conditions to the standard level of service during and following a significant weather event.

At the end of a Significant Weather Event, the Town will declare it over on social media and on the Town website under News and Notices.
