Village Bylaws

Bylaws benefit everyone by making our community a safer place to live, work and play.

Coaldale and District Municipal Enforcement are pleased to announce the commencement of enforcement to the Town of Coaldale, Town of Coalhurst, Town of Picture Butte and the Village of Barons on January 16, 2017.  Four Community Peace Officers will be working various shifts to allow for seven day a week coverage primarily from the hours of 7 a.m. until 9:30 p.m., however the times may vary due to changes to the Officer’s shifts.  The four Officers will be responsible for enforcing all Municipal bylaws for each community as well as Provincial Traffic Offences under the Traffic Safety Act.

If you have a question for an Officer or have a complaint, we can be reached at 1-844-645-2635 or you can file a complaint using our new online complaint form.  When accessing the link, you may need to adjust your computer security to allow pop ups.

When using the online form under the heading of Select a Group, use the drop down arrow and select Coaldale and district Municipal Enforcement. Once you have made the selection, then click on “Write New Online Report” and fill in the information.  When finished, it will be sent to an Officer on duty and will be dealt with in a timely fashion. If you feel the matter is an emergency, please call 911.  We look forward to servicing these communities and keeping them a safe place to live.

  • A reminder to everyone that there is no parking or obstruction allowed on any sidewalk within the Village.

Feeding Wild Animals

Please refrain from feeding birds, stray animals or wildlife on Village Boulevards.

Even small animals, like gophers, can quickly become invasive pests and create hazards with the holes they dig and destroying trees and shrubbery by eating the roots.
