Bylaw infraction warning notices are issued in several ways:
- By phone
- By mail
- In person
- By notice left on vehicle
The purpose of the warning notification is to advise you that a neighbour has a concern or that a bylaw officer has noticed a problem as it relates to a specific bylaw.
There is no penalty attached to a warning notice it is simply to create an awareness, however the notice may include a compliance date whereby you would be required to do something by a certain date in order to comply with a bylaw.
This occurs more often with property maintenance issues and dog noise.
