Why can’t the City remove the snow instead of piling it up?

Similar to most other Lower Mainland municipalities, the City of Coquitlam does not currently have resources for snow removal, just snow plowing. Under normal winter weather circumstances, our warmer climate means that snow typically doesn’t last very long and removal isn’t necessary.
