Town To Hire Additional Full-Time By-Law Enforcement Officer

The town’s By-law Enforcement Department has been flying with one wing for some time so my fellow councillors and I voted to hire a second-full time enforcement officer.

The new full-time position will replace a part-time position, which has been vacant and tough for the Town to fill. The full-time post will provide 7-day coverage with union support and increase annual hours of service by 702 hours or 36 per cent, better equipping the department to oversee more than 20 bylaws dealing with everything from dirty yards to dogs to discharging firearms.
