If a town has bylaws, they should be enforced, said Kinkora’s chief administrative officer (CAO) at a recent monthly meeting.
That's why the Rural Municipality of Kinkora is discussing hiring a bylaw enforcement officer on a part-time basis at $120 for a half-day once a week. The officer would make inspections, identify infractions, then write up and deliver tickets, said CAO Tina Harvey.
“People aren’t complaining, but that doesn’t mean the bylaws are being followed,” said Harvey.
Councillors recognized there are several bylaw issues that need attention but weren’t ready to commit to the expense. Coun. Andrew McCarville suggested that a new shared services model proposed by the Central Development Corporation would allow Kinkora to share the cost with nearby municipalities. The decision was tabled.
