"Bringing in 200 part-time operators at wages $10 less than the average for regular operators with no pension or benefits is not how you run a successful public transit system.

Mow your lawn or the City of Winnipeg will mow it for you - and charge you to do so.

A city-wide pilot project is making the neighbourhood livability by-law a little tougher by clamping down earlier on those who don't cut their grass.

Coun. Janice Lukes (Waverley West) told 680 CJOB Monday it may not seem like much of a priority, but added councillors hear about it all the time.

"I worked quite a bit around the University Manitoba, dealing with illegal rooming houses and many landlords there did not do a thing to their property," said Lukes.

$10K fine for grocery store that opened Good Friday should have been left to magistrate: police

$10K fine for grocery store that opened Good Friday should have been left to magistrate: police Winnipeg police say a $10,000 ticket given to a grocer for opening on Good Friday was issued incorrectly, and shouldn’t have specified a dollar amount for the fine. Instead, the fine issued to the owner of the Foodfare chain of independent grocery stores must be determined by a magistrate, said Winnipeg Police Service spokesperson Const. Jay Murray. Foodfare owner Munther Zeid said last week two Winnipeg police officers handed him the $10,000 fine for opening his West Portage location on April 19 — Good Friday — in violation of Manitoba's Retail Businesses Holiday Closing Act.

"They did not care for it ... So this, too, will apply to landlords who do not take care of properties. And it will apply to residents."

The city by-law states property owners have to keep grass on their properties under 15 cm. Normally, if residents complained about their neighbour's grass, it would take between 6-8 weeks to be taken care of.

The pilot project will bring that down to about two weeks, said Lukes.

"As crazy as it sounds, this was a top issue during the election campaign and it's been a top issue in this ward for four years," she added.

The city bylaw officers in the past have gone out, sometimes four or five six times to a property to try and get compliance," she said. Now, the process will be a warning first, time to comply and then the city will take care of it.

If by-law officers are sent out more than twice or if people are repeat offenders, there will be additional charges, which will appear on a property owner's tax bill.

A first fine will be $250 on a property tax bill. By-law officers will be able to hand out fines of $150, with an early-payment option of $75, she said.
