Communications, Bylaw Enforcement, Animal Licensing

As Council places a great emphasis on good communications with our partners and ratepayers, the Administration is engaged in a number of programs. This includes municipal industry relations, intergovernmental relations, media relations, the Town’s monthly newsletter, and an open dialogue with our citizens.


The Town of Milk River also contracts the Ridge Regional Public Safety Service to provide Community Peace Officers to ensure that the policies and bylaws of the municipality are upheld. The Officer patrols the community each week, investigating animal complaints, unsightly premises complaints, and various other municipal concerns.  Fines will be issued for non-compliance in certain cases.


The Town of Milk River also requires that pet owners purchase animal licenses for all dogs and cats. These licenses ensure that the ownership of an animal can be determined, and that the safety of the animal is ensured. Please Note: Pitbull Terriers, Staffordshire, Pitbull Terriers, American Staffordshire Terrier, American Pit Bull Terrier or a dog that has an appearance and physical characteristics that are substantially similar to any of the aforementioned dogs are prohibited in the Town of Milk River.
