FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. – The City of Fort St. John says it’s responsible for all the coloured shovels around the City.

Residents started to notice the barrels full of coloured shovels all around the City, including at 100th street and 100th avenue.

In a Facebook post, the City says they placed the shovels around the community as a part of its Winter City Micro-Project.

The Facebook post says, “Perhaps you want to clear off a snowy bench and watch the kids play? Or maybe the kids need some group shoveling lessons.”

The shovels have been placed at the Kin Park skating rink, Centennial Park stage, Mathews Park skating loop, City Hall, Off-Leash Dog Park, and the 100th & 100th green space.

Other programs the CIty has run in it’s Winter City Micro-Project include the Light up your business grant, the Snow Angels Program, additional holiday and winter decorations, temporary public art installations, and the winter sand program.
