Winter 2018/2019 - Snow Removal

The Town of Magrath does not remove snow from sidewalks adjacent to private property. This is the responsibility of the property owner. If by chance your sidewalk is cleared it is because of a “Snow Angel” in your neighborhood and does not mean that it will be cleared for you through the whole season.

Remember, when clearing snow from your driveways or sidewalks to shovel the snow onto your own property or boulevard and not onto the roads. This will allow for proper drainage and will help to avoid ice patches forming on roads and sidewalks. Thank you for your co-operation!

Business License and Animal License Reminders for 2019

Just a reminder to all business owners that your 2018 business license will expire December 31st. 2019 Business Licenses will be available in January from the Town Office at a cost of $60.00 each.

All dogs in the Town of Magrath must be licensed and licences must be renewed annually. 2018 tags will expire December 31st. 2019 tags can be purchased at the Town Office in January. Altered (spayed or neutered) dogs are $20.00 per year and unaltered dogs are $40.00 per year.

No Skating on Ponds

We would like to remind everyone that skating is not allowed at the Fish pond or the North entrance wetland pond. There is sensitive wetland and other vegetation at the north pond that is still getting established and which also thins the ice. If you have any questions please contact the Town Office.
