Bylaw Enforcement

The goal of Bylaw Enforcement is to gain voluntary compliance with City regulatory bylaw requirements using the following means: inform, educate and as a last resort, enforce. Enforcement of Bylaws frequently follows receipt of complaints, however, the City is becoming more pro-active on health and safety issues as well as the enforcement of City bylaws on the promenade, pier and beach areas.

  • Name of complainant

  • Detailed description of complaint (including description and license number of vehicle if vehicle involved)
