New bylaw officer hired

Preparing for back to school traffic

Craig Douglas is the new bylaw officer for Rimbey.

He is expecting to receive his official notification of his provincial peace officer certification soon and presently is working as a bylaw officer in town.

Douglas spent about 10-years-working for the City of Red Deer as a peace officer.

He is very much enjoying getting to know the community of Rimbey.

“There is a good sense of community here,” he said. “There are lots of friendly faces and seems to be a lot of pride in the community.”

Douglas is hoping to contribute to the community in a positive way in his new position.

He noted that unkempt yards seem to be the biggest issue presently and notes that bylaw officers do their best to work with the individual to explain bylaws and give them an opportunity to clean up their property.

Fines are issued as a last resort and can run up to $300. The fines double after the first offense.

Douglas plans to be patrolling the school areas closely when school begins again to ensure all rules are adhered to.
