Town seeking public consideration on two bylaws

Rimbey town council and administration are looking to bring two bylaws forward in the next little while.

Rimbey town council and administration are looking to bring two bylaws forward in the next little while and they are seeking public consultation.

The first is the land use bylaw and the second in as animal bylaw, the latter caused a bit of discrepancy during a State of the Municipality Update meeting, held July 8.

Interim CAO Donna Tona proposed a new bylaw would curb dogs to be able to move freely in the backs of truck and would instead need to be caged.

Once resident stood to say they were uncomfortable with having a caged animal in the event of an accident.

However, Tona says many municipalities are moving toward this kind of bylaw, with a partial basis stemming from veterinary statistics. “They’re tired of patching up your animals, or euthanizing them.”
