In all cases the Bylaw Officer will attempt contact by knocking on the door or ringing the doorbell. If there is no response, the notice is left at the front door. If a violation has occurred, the notice will be sent via. registered mail.


What happens if I have a property violation?

Once a violation is observed, the Bylaw Officer will provide you a period of time to take whatever action necessary to correct the problem. If you are unsure or require further explanation regarding your property violation, call the Bylaw Officer as soon as you receive the letter to find out how to correct the problem and do so promptly. The lower portion of the notice contains the contact information for the bylaw officer. In some cases permits may be required for the repairs, so please ensure all procedures are followed.


What if the property receiving the violation is a rental property?

For common violations, the Bylaw Officer will try to gain compliance from either the resident of the property or the property owner. In the event the resident does not voluntarily comply, the property owner will be notified.

The windstorm knocked a tree down into my yard and damaged some of my property. Who is held responsible?

It depends. If it was a tree on your neighbour’s property, it becomes a neighbour dispute and you would have to resolve it with them. If it was from a tree on Town property, then the Town would be held responsible and will take the necessary measures to resolve it.
