“The Town previously held a contract with Deleau Enforcement Services,” she told Council. “This contract ended on April 30 . . . but while the new Bylaw Enforcement Officer transitions into office, [Deleau] will continue to assist with urgent bylaw enforcement matters . . . until May 31.”

Council also approved a new bylaw “logo” for its officers to wear on their uniforms.

The $6-million project also included a realignment of Kingfisher Drive where it intersects 89 Street. Construction is scheduled to begin later this year.
