Personal Items on Private Property

Public Appeal – Parking Personal Items on Private Property Not Permissible

It has been noted that several residents of Souris are utilizing public/municipal property for parking and/or storing their personal items, i.e. vehicles, campers, trailers, etc.  This common occurrence is not a permissible activity and cannot continue.  Personal items need to be parked and/or stored on private property and not on streets and back lanes.

The Municipality of Souris-Glenwood Council wishes to advise of possible safety problems this activity may have to both the general public and our employees, i.e. visual impediment, traffic flow restrictions, snow traps, snow removal hazard, emergency interference/delays, maintenance delays & public/staff safety.

The Municipality of Souris-Glenwood Council is concerned with the potential liability created by the citizens’ actions and wishes to inform the residents that the municipality will not accept any responsibility for damages to persons or property.

Council requests residents to take immediate action to rectify this situation; and that citizens refrain from any such actions in the future.  Thank you in advance for your anticipated cooperation in this matter.
