If an unauthorized vehicle is parked in any stall not designated as a Visitor Stall, a Strathcona County By-law Officer may issue a violation ticket. Any member can report unauthorized vehicles to the By-law office at (780) 449-0170. The following information will be required when you call:
- license plate number
- make / model / colour
- date, time and location the vehicle was parked at the Co-op somewhere other than a designated visitor parking stall
In some cases a ticket may still be issued, even if the vehicle has been moved by the time a By-law Officer arrives at the Co-op.
