Bruderheim may not have its own bylaw officers, but enforcement is taken care of.
The Town of Bruderheim has a two year contract with Strathcona County Bylaw Enforcement coming up for renewal in a few months.
The contract was discussed at Bruderheim's council meeting on Wednesday (Jan.17).
“It was on the agenda and administration was looking for feedback from council, as to our thoughts about the contract and what might be going forward from that,” said mayor Karl Hauch.
Strathcona County Bylaw officers go out to Bruderheim when needed. They provide service for dog bylaw issues in town, Bruderheim’s community standards bylaw and are qualified to enforce provincial standards.
“I think for the bylaw enforcement we get through the contract with have with Strathcona County, for $8,000 we get excellent service,” said Hauch.
In the past, Bruderheim has asked whether Lamont County would be interested in offering a quote on their bylaw enforcement, but they were not able to do so at the time.
“It was asked of our administration to inquire with Lamont County if they might be interested in providing bylaw enforcement for our community, so it will be interesting to see if anything comes back from that,” noted Hauch.
The contract renews every two years and will be voted on at the next council meeting.
