Alexis Wandler of Brooks was appointed as the new Bylaw Enforcement Officer by city council earlier in July,
“I applied for the position here and I’ve lived here my whole life so it was nice to stay home,” she said.
Wandler was appointed by council on July 2.
“This is my first job in this field since graduating college,” she said.
“It feels great to be able to work for the community that I was raised in.”
The bylaw enforcement officer handles complaints made to the city such as for unkept yards or back alleys in the summer and winter as well as animal control.
“I mostly handle animal control, anyone with overly tall grass in their front yards or back-alleys and snow removal for certain residents,” she said.
Wandler also deals with business license applications and parking enforcement.
“Being able to do what I studied in college and to be able to do it in my hometown is really great,” she said.
“It’s a really unique situation and I couldn’t be more grateful.”
Wandler worked for the city during high school in and out of different positions.
She studied criminal justice during her time at Lethbridge College and has plans to continue down that path.
“I am currently getting my degree in criminology.”
