Clive Village Council got their first look at a revision to the existing traffic and roads by-law during their regular council meeting on Monday, November 26.
Julian Veuger and Robyn Lomans from Lacombe County Enforcement spoke to council regarding recommended changes to the existing Traffic by-law which included on-street parking, sidewalk clearing and vehicle weight limits.
“What we’re trying to do is limit the weight of trucks in residential areas,” said Karen Kane, CAO of the Village of Clive.

The by-law also aims to limit of parking recreational vehicles on residential streets, a problem that Kane describes as a dangerous situation for emergency vehicles.
The by-law passed first reading at council and will be reintroduced for second reading during council’s next meeting on Monday, December 10.
Animal patrol
Council received correspondence from George Potter, chief administrating officer at Alberta Animal Services, seeking to increase the number of animal service patrol hours in the village. According to Potter, the amount of complaints his office has received have increased and the current patrol times do not address the needs of the community.
Council instructed administration to research the issue and return to council at a later date with cost and time figures.
Gift bags
A motion was passed by Councillor Dan Graden that the village-sponsored gift bags, to be distributed by the Clive Public Library during the Christmas movie viewing on Friday, December 14, not exceed $250.
