Traffic, dogs, cats, and unsightly premises kept Bow Island bylaw officer, Jason Schreiber busy during the month of May, but files under the traffic control bylaw by far occupied the most of his time, according to the report he presented to town council at their June 22 regular meeting.
“I had 11 files under the traffic control bylaw in May and these are becoming a common occurance. There were people parking everywhere,” said Schreiber.
Two areas of concern of people parking their vehicles on Town property is sout of Centennial Park Crescent East and the grassed area south of the ball diamonds.
Schreiber indicated in his report that his issuing of warnings has been effective.
Dog issues continue to hound Schreiber and during the month of May, he dealt with five reports under the Dog Control bylaw. One barking dog complaint was addressed and another where a three dogs were running at large.
In one situation, a dog from Hays was held at the Bow Island kennels until it could be rehomed.
Schreiber also issued seven caution cards to property owners/tenants with nuisance/unsightly premises, but only filed three files during May. Two files have been carried over into his June report.
Damaged picnic tables at Centennial Park accounted for his one miscellaneous file and Schreiber said public works was prompt in completing the repairs.
