*On March 12, police were called to a local store to investigate non-sufficient fund cheques they had received. The investigation involving a 38-year-old male is ongoing.
*On March 11, police received a call regarding a neighbour blowing snow into the back alley. Strictly speaking the provisions of the littering bylaw applies even to snow. Under the bylaw, snow from private property cannot be placed on a public street or lane. Weyburn has obviously had a large amount of snowfall in a short time period making meaningful cleaning of property very difficult. Please try your best to be understanding at this time. The more snow blown or piled from a private residence on a street soon makes that street impassible and a problem for not only all local residents but emergency vehicles as well.
