The city will start cracking down on ATV drivers and dog owners who use the Millennium Trail.
Over the past three years, the city has been educating people about not picking up after their dogs and using ATVs on the trail.
Now, it’ll start handing out tickets to people who break city bylaws.
That includes a $75 ticket for those who don’t have their dogs on a leash and a $100 fine for owners who don’t pick up after their dogs and for ATV drivers illegally using the trail.
It’s disconcerting that people are using the Millennium Trail as an ATV route, said Mayor Bev Buckway.
“How concerned would you be if you saw someone driving a Harley Davidson down the sidewalk?” she said.
“You’d think it was totally out of place.”
The bylaw department has gotten a lot of complaints in the past few years from residents and visitors on these matters, said senior bylaw constable Dave Pruden.
Now that education has been done, it’s time to step up enforcement, he said.
