Economic Development & Communications Coordinator  - Full-Time Permanent Position 

Grader Flags

The goal of the County of Barrhead is to clear the snow from all roadways within three days after the end of a snowfall. Individuals may also wish to have their driveways and approaches plowed. Grader Flags may be purchased from the County at a cost of $30.00.  We also require the signing of a hold harmless agreement by the landowner or renter. The  individual must then erect the flag and make it readily visible at the driveway access point. The flag will be picked up by the Grader Operator when he completes the plowing. Driveways will be plowed at the discretion of the County, depending on snow fall amounts and circumstances. Follow these guidelines, and be prepared for the next big snowfall, before it happens! Please note unused grader flags do not expire from year to year, and can be refunded if you're unable to use them.
