Local Government - By-Law Enforcement
Respecting the rights of your neighbours and ensuring that our property values are maintained is an important aspect of community living. At times however, boundaries may be crossed and By-Law Enforcement Officers are given the task of investigating complaints received from the public about alleged violations of various municipal by-laws. The goal of by-law enforcement is not to penalize the citizens of the municipality or visitors, but rather achieve compliance through education and the provision of information in order to preserve the quality of life to which each citizen is entitled.
