Protection of County infrastructure is a primary focus for our CPO. Overweight commercial vehicles traveling on County roads and over County bridges can cause severe and costly damage to those transportation routes. Our CPO travels with portable scales for on-the-spot verification of commercial vehicle weight checks and will enforce all laws related to weights and measurements, load security, transportation of hazardous materials and commercial vehicle certification.
It is important to be aware of current Road Bans while operating commercial vehicles within Lethbridge County. Road Bans are posted at https://lethcounty.ca/road-ban
If the Fire Hazard is high, Lethbridge County may impose a Fire Ban which automatically cancels all issued Fire Permits. Always check our website or the Alberta Fire Bans website (https://albertafirebans.ca) before you burn to ensure no Fire Ban is in effect.
Burning while a Fire Ban is in place is an offence under Lethbridge County Bylaw #1423- Fire Ban and subject to fines by the Community Peace Officer. To report an illegal burn during a Fire Ban, call the CPO at (403) 915-6212 or dial 9-1-1.
