Summertime is construction time
To ensure the safety of all concerned, please keep a respectful distance (minimum 90’ / 30 m) from any city crews or contractors, open ditches and heavy equipment. Watch for and obey any signs posted. Thank you for your cooperation.
We would like to thank everyone who has come in recently and licensed his/her dog. We would like to remind people who still need to do so to please come in and license your dog for the 2016 year. It is the best way for Animal Control to get a lost dog back to their family.
Dog and cat etiquette
Please keep your dog on a leash in public places within city limits, including the Rails-to-Trails. There are three designated off-leash area within the city: Lois Creek Trails in Townsite; along the St. Mary’s River in Marysville between Marysville Falls and Bootleg Gap Golf Course; and in the Kimberley Nature Park. Please keep cats out of neighbours yards and gardens.
Any animal that is not under the control of a person on a leash that causes damage to property, or causes harm to people or other animals is subject to a fine or impoundment. For more information please contact our Bylaw/Animal Control Officer at 250-427-9663 or view our Animal Control Bylaw at http://kimberley.ca/city/bylaws.
