Kindersley’s elected officials are about to adopt a new Animal Control Bylaw and one of the more significant changes is in the appearance of the bylaw itself.

The new bylaw was given first reading at a town council meeting on Jan. 29 and its been put out for public scrutiny. People will get the chance to provide feedback and concerns at a public hearing on Feb. 12 at the start of the next council meeting.

Bylaw 03-18, to provide for the care and control of animals, bees, livestock and poultry, is anticipated to receive its final two readings at that meeting.

Several changes have been made to the bylaw.

The town’s previous Animal Control Bylaw, known as Bylaw 18-11, has been in place since September 2011 and it will be repealed after the new bylaw is adopted. The formats used for the two bylaws look nothing alike. While there are similar sections, appendices and language in the bylaws, there are several changes.
