From January to May, dog and parking complaints in Gibbons have both gone up compared to 2017’s numbers.
For dogs, the town has had to deal with 14 complaints and warnings. Last year they only had six.
"We have our peace officers with Sturgeon County who comes out and investigate each and every complaint, but that being said we do have more dogs this year in town," said Gibbons mayor Dan Deck.
The total number of dog licenses in the town is up by over 80 from last year.
There was another significant hike in parking complaints. Once again, there were 14 complaints compared to six.
"We've got a snapshot of the first quarter, by the end of the third quarter I think you will see numbers level off," added Deck.
The numbers were presented to council through a Municipal Administration Report. Categories that went down include vandalism and noise complaints.
