Property upkeep and maintenance shows pride in our community. The Community Standards Bylaw identifies key areas in which property owners are responsible to make sure their property is safe and well maintained. These more common infractions from the Bylaw have been keeping Peace Enforcement busy so far this summer:
• Physical deterioration, which creates or has the potential to create unsafe or dangerous conditions which may threaten public safety.
• Lack of general maintenance and upkeep and/or unacceptable storage, accumulation and/or collection on the premises or property of building material, debris, refuse, and/or structures in disrepair, excavation.
• Lack of weed control or maintained vegetation, encroachment of trees and shrubs onto adjacent properties, and accumulation of stagnant water.
• Junked vehicles
Failure to comply with this bylaw could result in fines – 1st offence $200, 2nd offence $400.00, and 3rd or subsequent offence in the same calendar year $600.00.
Do your part and keep your property tidy and in good repair.
