It's been called a “co-creation” day.

It's what the city of Montreal organized Saturday, working on better coordinating the city's snow removal operations.

"The ultimate here for the city of Montreal is to create an app or other information service that can better help with snow removal, so letting residents know when snow plows will be clearing their streets, they'll know when to move their cars, so they don't get towed or ticketed", explained CTV reporter Kevin Gallagher.

Members of the public were invited to provide input.

An average 5000 vehicles were towed during each Montreal snow removal operation last year.
