Bylaw Services Fast Facts

Being a Good Neighbour isn't just a bylaw - it is a way of life in High River!

In January 2022, the new High River Bylaw Services model is in effect. The Town's Bylaw Services Team will focus on proactive community enforcement and increased public engagement and education. We look forward to working with you.

The role of Bylaw Services is to enhance public safety, contributing to a high quality of life in High River. The Town's Bylaw Services team works out of the High River Fire department building. Please see the new 24/7 Bylaw Complaints Phoneline and General Administration numbers in the sidebar to the right. Residents are also encouraged to use the online Report a Concern form.
