Bylaws related to untidy properties
We have created bylaws related to untidy properties in order to maintain safe and clean communities, that people want to live in. Below is a summary of our regulations that relate to untidy properties:
- Loose garbage, yard waste, bottles, cans, boxes,household furniture, packaging materials, parts of machinery, equipment, appliances and automobile parts must be stored so that they are not visible from outside of the property.
Fines for violations of these regulations are between $100 to $500, depending on the violation.
Our untidy properties regulations are found in part 4 of our Community Standards Bylaw.
This page is an overview of this bylaw. Please refer to the actual bylaw for more detailed information. Original copies of the bylaw are available at the City Clerk's office.
