The Village receives many verbal complaints about dogs barking, running at large and dog poop being left on the ground by dog owners. Please consider others when you are out walking your dog and pick up after your pet. Community Peace Officers are authorized under the Animal Control Bylaw to carry out enforcement measures including issuing Municipal Violation Tickets.

Gull Lake Stabilization Project
The agreement between the four lakefront municipalities has been signed.
Although no pumping was done in 2012/13 the funds will go into a pool that will be used in future years if the cost to pump exceeds $100,000 or equipment needs upgrading.
No more than two years worth of funds will be held for the years we do not pump (less standby power/repair costs). Any further costs will not be invoiced out unless we pump in that current year.
The Summer Village of Parkland Beach is responsible for 7.5% of the cost to pump, up to $100,000. That computes to $7500 a year for us.
