This would be very limited contracted hours over the course of a year. The individual would be an independent contractor and not an employee of the Village.
This is an excellent opportunity for a retired handyman who may be available on short notice.

BYLAW ENFORCEMENT SERVICES
The Village will again be contracting with EPS Management Services Inc. of Prince Albert to provide help in the area of Bylaw enforcement May through September this year.
Initially, they will be targeting the Nuisance Abatement Bylaw and the Dog Licensing and Control Bylaw.
The Nuisance Abatement Bylaw deals with any yards or properties that are “untidy” or “unsightly” including overgrown grass and weeds, solid waste accumulations, old vehicles and any other waste materials kept on a property or encroaching onto municipal property or road allowances. The Dog Licensing and Control Bylaw deals with unlicensed dogs, dogs running at large, dogs barking or howling constantly so as to create a nuisance and dogs defecating on property not that of their owner and not being cleaned up.
Uniformed officers will be in the community and they will have full authority to enforce the regulations of the Bylaws and issue violation notices as required. If you have any areas that you think may be a concern, please rectify at your earliest convenience or you may be subject to a violation notice. This includes maintaining your yard and property and ensuring that your dogs are licensed. Thank you for your cooperation.
You cooperation with these enforcement officers is expected and appreciated.
