On any block and in any neighbourhood, it only takes one house that is harbouring illegal activities to undermine the safety of all residents of that community and affect the property values throughout that neighbourhood.
The Safer Communities and Neighbourhoods Act is intended to empower residents to take back their neighbourhoods by reporting problem residences or businesses that are habitually used for illegal activities. These activities could include drugs, prostitution, gang or criminal activities, child sexual abuse or the unlawful sale or consumption of alcohol. (See Link)
Village Snow Removal:
Please refrain from pushing snow from your property onto the village streets.
There is an abundance of snow that our staff are currently moving in order to clean up the streets. Adding piles to what the staff needs to move makes their job bigger and prevents them from getting the village done efficiently. Thank you.
The Village of Kenaston has bylaws in place to maintain the integrity, onus of liability, and structure within the Village. Examples of these Bylaws include the Animal Bylaw (licensing your pet), the Building Bylaw (Building Inspector), the Water and Sewer Bylaw (payment of water & sewer), the Nuisance Bylaw (which includes yard maintenance) and the ATV Bylaw (helmet use/rules of the road).
Village Council has discussed hiring a Bylaw Enforcement Officer to enforce the bylaws of the Village. A Bylaw Enforcement Officer would contact residents regarding non-compliance to our bylaws and issue the fines accordingly. The Village Council would prefer that residents voluntarily follow the bylaws, but will review this option at the next couple of council meetings and make a decision in the future.
