Winter Orimat Road Committee

Orimat Road Association Inc.
2018/2019 Winter Season Invoice

The Winter Committee has been hard at work to provide winter access for property owners and hopefully attract more participation from Orimat and Delta members. The Board is pleased to provide the following outline of rules and fees associated with this coming years winter use.

Non Winter Members:
Non Winter Members are not permitted access, or parking, to our “plowed” road system with any wheeled vehicle (car, truck, ATV, UTV etc.). Non Winter Members are permitted to walk, cross country ski, snowshoe or snowmobile on our plowed road system, at anytime, and will not incur any fees or costs. Any Member wishing to visit their cottage for a day is required to become a Winter Member, which means that the Member would then observe the Winter Member rules and procedures including paying the appropriate Daily Fee to Orimat, as indicated below. Any Member who is interested in plowing beyond the currently plowed zones should contact their Tributary Representative.
If Members elect to access our plowed road system, and have not paid the appropriate fee, the incurred fee will be added to their spring invoice billing. This amount will be collected in the manner outlined in the constitutions, by the respective Treasurer of the association of the member.
Winter rules are in effect from the day of the first plow of the fall (an announcement will be sent out to indicate this has occurred) to the 15 th of April 2019. Please note the following:

THE APRIL 15TH DATE DOES NOT MEAN THE ROAD IS ACCESSIBLE AND SAFE. THE BOARD OF DIRECTORS WILL ISSUE AN EMAIL, WHICH WILL BE POSTED TO THE WEBSITE, WHEN THE ROAD IS CONSIDERED OPEN. THIS INCLUDES THE ABILITY TO ACCESS YOUR COTTAGE SAFELY AND THE ROAD SURFACE CAN WITHSTAND THE TRAFFIC. IT IS THE COTTAGER'S RESPONSIBILITY TO ENSURE THEY CAN MAKE THIS TRIP SAFELY.  IF YOU ARE UNSURE OF THE STATUS CONTACT YOUR TRIBUTARY REPRESENTATIVE.

Winter Members:
Our Winter Committee has selected Robinson Haulage to plow and maintain our road system for this upcoming winter season. They are our exclusive contractor for plowing which means no other contractors or members are permitted to plow our roads.
Driveways are the responsibility of the cottage/homeowner and you may choose whomever you wish to plow your own personal driveway and laneways.

Winter Members have two types of pricing schedules to consider. Seasonal or daily pricing (per cottage).

There is no parking in the designated passing areas. There is no parking in the snowplow turnaround areas. If you require parking please contact your tributary representative. If your vehicle is blocking the road it will be removed.
Use the road at your own risk. All wheel drive vehicles with snow tires are the minimum required. Tire chains and sand are highly recommended.

YOU ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR SAFE ACCESS TO AND FROM YOUR COTTAGE/PARKING AREA.

AT TIMES DURING THE WINTER SEASON THE ROAD MAY NOT BE SAFE TO USE. WINTER PLOWING DOES NOT GUARANTEE IMMEDIATE ACCESS. AT TIMES YOU MAY HAVE TO DELAY YOUR ARRIVAL, OR EXIT, DUE TO CHANGING ROAD AND WEATHER CONDITIONS.

As always, winter members are responsible for their guests and contractors. We do not guarantee accessibility for construction traffic, and members are responsible for any damage caused by their contractors. No heavy loads are allowed during the winter season.

Garbage:
Garbage collection ends approximately the first week of November and commences late spring after half load season is finished. Garbage is picked up at the gate Tuesday morning during winter plowing season. To prevent the mess caused by wildlife when garbage is left at the gate early, all members are asked to abide by the following: DO NOT DROP OFF GARBAGE AT THE GATE UNTIL 7am TUESDAY MORNING.
