Contacting bylaw services in Lacombe is about to get a lot easier. Lacombe peace officers have recently received a permanent schedule change that ensures that Lacombe citizens are being taken care of even outside working hours.

The peace officers will now be available from 8am-7pm instead of their previous 9am-5pm schedule. They will also now be available from Monday to Saturday whereas before they were not available on Saturday.

Parker Fandry, community peace officer comments on how the change will affect Lacombe, “We were only available from nine to five and it makes it kind of difficult to get a hold of people, deal with complaints, and that kind of stuff. In addition, that’s why we’re also adding a Saturday. So, if people do have complaints and people need to talk with a bylaw officer, anything along those lines, or if we need to talk to people we have the ability to do so.”

“It’s more of a recent thing, from my understanding, that people have really been asking for it and it’s coming down from the council that they’ve asked for it. So we’re doing a test run here to see how it goes, to see if the public accepts it, and if it does well then we will keep the extended hours.”

Overall, it is a change that will ensure that the people of Lacombe are being listened to and looked after.

Lacombe bylaw officers look after the following items of concern:

  • Parking concerns
  • Ice removal
  • Animal control
  • Unsightly premises
  • Noise complaints
