Town of Millet hires new Manager of Enforcement Services

Mitch Newton has over decade of experience in enforcement field

The Town of Millet has hired a new Manager of Enforcement Services who has over 18 years experience in emergency services.

Mitch Newton dropped by The Pipestone Flyer Dec. 7 to introduce himself. He said he has 18.5 years experience in emergency services work, and on and off over 10 years experience in the enforcement field.

Newton said when he saw the job posting, he was immediately interested. “Absolutely,” he said Dec. 7. “Small town feel.”

Hired in November, Newton said he’s already getting to know Millet and has noticed a few things he’s going to focus on. He stated the bylaw was a bit lax regarding nuisance properties, meaning unsightly premises. While winter isn’t usually the time to focus on those, Newton said come spring he’s going to be addressing those properties.

Looking at traffic speed, especially Hwy. #2A through Millet, Newton noted the town council and CAO are looking at bringing in another agency to help out on that front.

Newton said he enjoys working in a small town like Millet because he grew up in a small town. “It’s a great town,” he said. “I love the small town.”

He also noted his department has a new number for complaints and contact: 780-387-4224.
