Be Prepared For Snow And Winter Conditions

Updated 10:35 AM, December 10, 2016

Be prepared for changing road conditions. Surfaces are bare and wet in portions of main roadways and priority routes, but expect winter driving conditions on lower priority routes, local streets, and at higher elevations where precipitation may continue as snow or mixed with rain.

City crews and equipment are in operation 24-hours maintaining priority streets, emergency routes, and bus routes. We appreciate your patience as we work towards removing snow and ice in other areas as weather conditions improve.

Snow plowing routes are established based on traffic volume, speed, road classification, road terrain, and accessibility by transit and emergency services. View our map of priority snow removal routes. More Snow and Ice Control information »

Please leave extra time to commute, consider taking an alternative route or mode of transportation, stay up to date with weather alerts and Translink service advisories.

Elections-Candidate-BlankSylvia GUNG

Email: sylviagung@gmail.com
Phone: 778-892-0306
Nomination Documents / Financial Disclosure Statement

It is Sylvia Gung’s second application for the position, and she shows an effective mayor who uses any opportunity to empower citizens, since the position allows nothing for the real job – establishing wholesome society. This has been obvious through the pipeline business and others, such as the problems with the housing, health care, education, and so on. She details suggestions for the citizens to work toward indefinitely freezing the taxes and pay hikes, with the strengthened democracy, and lists some: 1) Banning election campaign, restoring citizens the sense of responsibility; 2) Banning behaviors that hints sex/ sexuality, even including Bridal Kiss and walking hand in hand, that hurt public decorum and lead to further violence; 3) Getting rid of the school board that acts as nothing but funnel to thwart its political agenda down the throat of the public education; 4) Innovating two backward organizations that are the unions and PAC’s.
