The City of Winnipeg will be exploring the idea of an Uber-like addition to snow-clearing.
Coun. Russ Wyatt believes the city should start a pilot project to test an app that allows smaller contractors to help clear residential streets and sidewalks if the city requests them to do so.
He says he hopes a pilot project could run in one Winnipeg area to determine the idea’s merit.
A committee agreed it’s worth checking into on Monday. A service report on the idea is expected to be back within 90 days.
However, the city’s public works chair has previously warned that snow-clearing contracts may not allow for the change.
The question on your mind is probably ‘how much will it cost ME?’ Nothing! So this app idea sounds great!
