Town of Millet community peace officer reminds about summer vacation

CPO Chanse Trenholm also handling community standards complaints

People are working in their gardens, getting their campers ready and enjoying that sunny weather. Summer is here, but one Millet community peace officer wants to remind local residents to be wary of some summer issues.

CPO Chanse Trenholm said at the Pipestone Flyer office June 5 first and foremost motorists should remember that school will be out for the summer in a couple of weeks, and lots of kids will be out and about enjoying their vacation. That includes cycling, rollerblading, skateboarding and other activities.

While school zones are not in effect during summer vacation, playground zones remain so and that includes the area near Sec. Hwy#616. Trenholm reminded motorists to keep it slow in those areas. He noted that he may be doing some joint work with other police forces in the #616 area.

Trenholm also stated, with summer weather, come all the problems that warm weather cause, such as quickly growing grass and weeds. He said he’s been dealing with quite a number of tall grass and weed complaints in Millet.

Trenholm said everyone wants to keep Millet beautiful, and the better everyone’s yards look, the better the community looks. The town appreciates cooperation from residents who keep their grass trimmed and weeds removed, but those residents who choose not to cooperate could force the town to handle it at the property owner’s expense.

An issue not confined to summer but still common in Millet is a loose pet. Trenholm asked residents to please keep their dogs and cats on their own property and away from their neighbour’s. According to Millet’s animal control bylaw, there shouldn’t be any pet running at large.

The CPO noted it’s not just dogs running at large, although there are problems with dogs in the community. He said there’s an awfully large stray cat issue in Millet and requested pet owners keep their feline at home.
