Respecting the rights of our neighbours and ensuring that our property values are maintained is an important aspect of community living. Bylaws set standards for the community and are an important tool to ensure we set boundaries in acceptable behaviour and values. At times, however, boundaries may be crossed and Bylaw Compliance Officers are given the task to investigate complaints received from the public about alleged violations of various municipal bylaws.
In addition, officers are tasked with enforcing the Provincial Motor Vehicle Act regulations concerning parking, in order to ensure safety for our residents. These regulations may include such things as parking too close to a fire hydrant, stop sign or crosswalk, or parking adjacent to yellow lines or parking on the wrong side of the road creating traffic safety concerns.
The goal of the Bylaw Division is to educate and provide information in order to preserve the quality of life to which each citizen is entitled.
