Animal Control & Bylaw Services
Keeping things in check
Bylaws ensure a safe, quiet, and pleasant environment for residents. A Municipal Bylaw Enforcement Officer is employed to investigate concerns such as noise complaints, property standards issues, littering/dumping, fences, and other matters.
The goal of Animal Control & Bylaw Services is not to penalize the residents of Mackenzie or visitors to our community. We strive to achieve voluntary compliance through education and the provision of information to preserve the quality of life to which each citizen is entitled. Bylaw Officers are responsible for enforcing District bylaws and respond to questions or concerns regarding:
While there are certain areas of enforcement that are safety related and require proactive enforcement, the majority of these bylaws are enforced on a complaint only basis. This ensures that the Bylaw Enforcement Officers are serving the needs of the community and that the complaints received are of high importance.
PLEASE NOTE not all complaints require action or intervention by the District, as some issues are considered either as a civil matter between the two property owners, or as minor non-enforceable infractions.
