(AEN) - With Leduc's fast growth there has been a continuous increase in bylaw infractions, weed problems and traffic issues. There are several areas where problems have been perennial and this is not acceptable.
While the bylaws officers have been busy doing their job responding to offences, I believe that the City needs to do a much better job in this area.
My recommendations are:
- To assign geographic areas to bylaw officers in regards to weed problems
- To increase the fines related to weed offences and reduce time frames for compliance
- To increase resources in this area but to ensure that increased expense is covered by fines
- To set and enforce higher standards for the community
