District bylaws enforced

Public complaints about loose dogs, snowboarders and prohibited parking

The commissionaire’s report for February was presented at the March 11 District of 100 Mile House council meeting.

Bylaw enforcement officer Harold Underhill stated in his report that three separate incidents of dogs running loose were acted upon, two of them in response to public complaints.

A report of a black lab running around on Fraser Avenue during the mornings could not be confirmed, although Underhill said he moved his shift in order to attend the location early for four days. The dog’s owner was provided a copy of the related bylaw.

A large brown dog attempting to gain access into Save-On-Foods was picked up and impounded after no tags or licence were found.

The third incident was a matter of requesting its owner put a leash on the dog.

Two incidents of parking in a disabled parking space without the required parking tags were handled through District warning notes.

Another, unlicensed vehicle parked on Scott Road was removed by its owner upon request.

Snowboarders building a ramp at a stair railing in Centennial Park were asked to check first with the District office to determine if a licence or liability insurance was required, and they complied.

Other issues dealt with in February included a local business owner who was reminded to renew an outstanding 2014 business licence.
