MAINTENANCE REPORTING PROCESS
The Maintenance department's role is to provide quality services which ensure safe living environments to all individuals we support and to provide safe Agency work environments.
"Develop a comprehensive Emergency Site Safety Plan.”
The Maintenance Department's 2021-2022 goal is to develop a comprehensive Emergency Site Safety Plan for all programs and living locations. This goal will provide more accessible knowledge in a house caused crisis. An example of this would be a plumbing or electrical problem. This site-specific handbook will ease staff and individuals minds as well as assist in quick reliable access to information while a housing related emergency is occurring. It will aid Supervisors and On-Call to better guide staff through a situation without being present as they can also consult the handbook to lead the staff through the steps to temporarily remedy the problem until maintenance or a contracted professional can arrive. This year’s goal improves the following: reliable consistent information, decrease stress levels during a housing emergency and better communication for all involved.
To ensure everyone is safe during icy and snowy winter conditions, the City of Lethbridge asks homeowners to clear any snow, ice or other debris that have been deposited on the sidewalk next to their property within 24 hours.
Have a little extra energy, good cheer or just feel like performing an act of kindness? Why not help shovel your neighbour’s sidewalk!
Need sand for your sidewalk?
The City of Lethbridge has two locations where you can get free sand for slippery sidewalks:
At the North Lethbridge Recycling Station along Stafford Drive, north of Scenic Drive.
At the West Lethbridge Recycling Station on the corner of University Drive West and Bridge Drive West.
If you would like to use this sand on your sidewalk, please bring along a bucket or bag and a shovel to aid in loading.
What happens if you don't keep your sidewalk clear?
According to The City of Lethbridge website you may receive a notice requiring your sidewalks to be cleared. Failure to comply may result in a first offence penalty of $50, a second offence of $100 and a third offence of $150.
If you have any questions or concerns, please contact the Maintenance Department or the Health and Safety Department 403-381-9515.
