Bylaws & Bylaw Enforcement

By-law Enforcement is primarily on a “reactive basis” (complaint driven) rather than a proactive basis. Whenever possible, by-law enforcement staff will utilize conciliation and negotiations to obtain compliance to the intent of the Township’s by-laws rather than having the matter proceed unnecessarily to the Courts.

The By-law Enforcement Section is responsible for the enforcement of a number of Municipal by-laws:

  • administration and enforcement of municipal by-laws;
  • conducting site inspections for by-law compliance;
  • taking action on complaints that are received; and
  • discussing possible by-law infractions and determination of need for enforcement.
