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.

DOGS AT LARGE
With the warmer weather, more dogs are being reported to be running at large in the community.
The Village is attempting to control this issue with the resources that we have available but we ask for residents help by submitting photo evidence of dogs at large after hours. Please take photos or report any dogs at large to email@example.com and we will attempt to identify the dog to our database and enforce the regulations of the municipal dog bylaw. If you are having problems with a specific dog, contact the office for help in rectifying the issue.
Please be a responsible dog owner and ensure that your pets are leashed when off your property. Do not let your dog roam into neighboring yards or onto municipal streets. This includes allowing them out at night to do their business off of your property.
When outdoors enjoying the summer season please be mindful of these simple rules:
· Respect local noise bylaws so as not to cause a disturbance for your neighbors or the public in general. Remember that people sleep with their windows open in the summer.
· Use sidewalks, where possible, for walking and jogging and the road allowance for biking.
· Do not trespass onto private property, including lawns.
· Ensure that you clean up after your pets.
· Do not litter.
· Keep the barking and howling of dogs to a minimum.
· Walk your dog on a proper leash.
· When using municipal facilities (park, ball diamonds, etc.) please clean up your area of use upon vacating.
Respecting these simple rules will allow all residents to enjoy their time outside this summer. Thank you for being thoughtful and courteous to your neighbors and for keeping our community clean, safe and enjoyable for all.
