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)
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.

Prohibited Garbage Dumping
Garbage bags have been left in front of the Kenaston Arena garbage bin. THIS IS NOT A PUBLIC GARBAGE. It is for rink use only as the Kenaston Community Recreation Board pays for the use of the bin.
If anyone is noticed dumping garbage by this bin, they may be fined by the RCMP for littering.
Minor Hockey Sponsor
With another exciting season of hockey approaching soon, we are reaching out to supporters and businesses to purchase an advertising package for the 2017/2018 season. The funds generated though our advertising program will help purchase new uniforms for the Novice team, and support the operation and maintenance of our local arena. See PDF
