Estevan residents are loving the nicer weather but it is bringing out a few issues that the bylaw officer hopes people can get under control.
"You have to keep your weeds and grass below 20 cm," shared Special Constable Josie Newton, "but any excessive weeds or any kinds of vegetation or growth that is not meant to be a garden has to be maintained at all times."
"Grass has to be cut, weeds have to be cut just to keep your yard looking nice and so there are no rodents that want to move in there. As well as anything in your backyard like wood hs to be off the ground just so it's not something like rats or mice are interested in."
"That includes the back alley along your fence side. Make sure the weeds stay down either they get cut or they get sprayed, you just can't have any excess growth around any of your property."
She added that dogs must also be on a leash in Estevan.
"There is an off-leash dog park out by Woodlawn and I would recommend using that if you plan to have your dogs running off-leash. In the city, there is a bylaw that all animals would have to be leashed when they are out and about and not on your own property."
"The dog at large fine is $100."
As well, those looking to prepare for a weekend of camping should know the rules around parking their RV on the street.
"If it is a motorhome that can be driven by itself, it does have to be moved every two hours. If it is a camper trailer that would have to be hooked up to a vehicle, it has to remain hooked up to the vehicle and it also has to move every two hours."
The ticket for an unhitched trailer on a roadway starts at $50. Two-hour parking is also $50.
