The Village Bylaw Enforcement Officer, with the help of the community, has been hard at work enforcing the Animal control bylaw over the past few months. We have been seeing some positive results, and the number and frequency of dog complaints has been significantly reduced. 

With the arrival of Spring, he will be turning his focus to the next phase of Village improvements, being Council’s initiative to improve the aesthetics of the community. Council is excited to start the next project and is requesting the help of residents to help beautify the Village. The Spring thaw is uncovering some areas of potential improvement, and Council will be putting some effort and funding into addressing the correction of issues impacting the beauty of the community for residents.  Village crews will be addressing some issues on Village properties, and the Bylaw enforcement officer will be tasked with addressing some of the longer-standing and arising issues as well, where necessary. 

Council would appreciate any efforts residents could make in ensuring areas under their control are attractive and inviting to prospective residents or developers as well.  A beautiful Village is the source of civic pride and a pleasant community appearance adds to home values, helps attract business investment, and overall improves the neighborhood reputation.
