Sidewalks heaving due to extreme heat


The City would like to advise the public that several sidewalks across Vernon have heaved as a result of expansion, due to extreme hot weather. Crews will mark the locations as they are discovered; however, repairs will not be made until the extreme heat passes.

The City encourages residents and visitors to be cautious as they travel around town and requests that sidewalk issues be reported to the City’s Operations department by phone at 250-550-6757, online at, or by using the Vernon Connect app.

Thank you for your patience as we continue to navigate and respond to the heat wave and its effects on the region.
