Criminals had better watch out!

Citizens on Patrol [COPS] could be out in the Falher area in the coming months.

At its regular meeting Dec. 14, Town of Falher council was informed about the plans.

McLennan RCMP Sgt. Mark Hall updated council after RCMP held a virtual community engagement meeting Dec. 10.

“We had 22 people tune in and several contributing to the conversation,” Hall says.

Rising property crime was the main issue with a few ideas coming out of the conversation including starting a COPS.

“It appeared that people want to be a part of the solution,” Hall says.

“So I will be arranging a liaison from the detachment to assist with the COPS program and in three months we will conduct another community consultation meeting.”

More priorities for snow removal

More streets in Falher will get priority for public works crews to clear and remove snow.

Council updated the Town’s snow removal policy to include additional priority routes.

In all, priority routes include, but not limited to, bus lanes at Ecole Routhier and Ecole Heritage schools; access to and from Villa Beausejour, Railway Ave. East and Ninth Ave in front of the fire hall.
