Town of Millet looking at unsightly premises this spring

Some yards in the Town of Millet may not be doing their part to keep the community beautiful, says the community peace officer.

CPO Chanse Trenholm said he will be focused on unsightly premises, nuisance yards and unkempt properties this spring.

He said yards that have issues like piles of garbage, rubbish and derelict vehicles should expect to see a “door knocker,” or official notice from the enforcement department to please clean-up the property. Trenholm said that property owners who have already received a warning but haven’t cleaned anything up could end up with a ticket.

Trenholm said any property owners who have questions or concerns can contact him at 780-216-1073.

Bike rodeo

The CPO reminded parents and kids in the community the Town of Millet Enforcement Department will be hosting a safety skills bike rodeo May 30 at the Agriplex. It’s free of charge; kids just need to remember to bring their helmets and bikes.

Dogs at large

Trenholm reminds Millet residents to please keep their dogs on their property or, if they take them off, always have dogs on a leash.

If dogs are found running loose and get caught the dogs go to the pound and owners will have to pay a fee to get their canine back safe and sound.

Positive ticketing

The Town of Millet will also be running a positive ticket program this summer. Prizes and awards are given out to youth and families who do positive, helpful acts in the community.

Trenholm stressed that prizes and awards donated by sponsors are available, and the biggest ones will be given to the youth who go above and beyond.
