The Weyburn Police Service continues to receive calls about untidy and unsightly property and alleys behind private property. Weyburn City Bylaw 2004-3021 for Property Maintenance and Nuisance Abatement states that untidy and unsightly property is defined as accumulation of new or used lumber, cardboard, paper, newspaper, appliances, tires, cans, barrels, scrap metal or other waste materials or junk. Please take the time to assure that your property and the alleys behind are free and clear of these materials.
In addition, maintenance of overgrown grass and weeds in the alley located behind your property are the responsibility of those in charge of that property. The Property Maintenance and Nuisance Abatement bylaw defines “overgrown,” as in excess of 20 centimeters in height.
Those citizens who have not taken care of such matters will initially be receiving reminder letters in their mailboxes.
Three cases of untidy and unsightly property are currently before the courts and one individual is awaiting sentencing. If you receive a letter of reminder, we appreciate your co-operation in helping keep Weyburn clean.
