Town of Millet

Millet town councilors heard during their regular meeting Apr. 12 the community peace officer is quite busy with traffic related issues.

The report given to councilors from Community Peace Officer Chanse Trenholm for Feb./Mar. 2017 summarized the activity he’d been busy with for those two months.

“I have done numerous traffic stops, 10 to 20 per cent of which resulted in fines,” stated Trenholm in his report. “I have noticed traffic has slowed.”

“There have been a lot of complaints about 53rd Street, the ‘no truck’ route. I have contacted Alberta Highways. We are currently working on a solution to the issue. Resolution will be made soon.

“I am checking for cell phone usage while driving, especially in the school zones as I have noticed it is a bit of an issue in town.”

He also noted some ATV and snowmobile complaints in town.

Trenholm noted he’s been busy with bylaw complaints as well. “There have been approximately two separate dogs at large and three barking dog complaints. I have been dealing with them as they come,” he stated in his report.

He stated he also delivered five reminders to businesses which hadn’t renewed their Town of Millet business license.

Trenholm said he has also dropped in on the Lil Pips playschool and keeps in touch with the RCMP on a regular basis to keep them informed about what’s been happening in Millet.

Council accepted the report for information.
