By-law Enforcement and Compliance

By-Law Enforcement

By-laws are established to ensure that the Municipality is a good place for everyone to share and enjoy by setting rules and boundaries that everyone must follow. These are some of the by-laws we have:



Property Standards


Clean and Clear

To help us meet this commitment, we will bring by-law violations to the attention of individuals and property owners and work hard to reach a satisfactory resolution in a timely manner.

Please be advised the Township has hired the Canadian Corps of Commissionaires, Kingston and Region for the provision of by-law enforcement services and has appointed the Officers of Canadian Corps of Commissionaires as By-law Enforcement Officers. You may see their vehicle throughout the Township. These Officers have been given authority to interact with ratepayers regarding by-law infractions or concerns. The Canadian Corps of Commissionaires will assist the existing Township By-Law Enforcement Officers with their duties.

By-laws are a comprehensive document passed by a municipality to provide for consistent and orderly development and to reduce the possibility of conflicting uses on properly zoned lands. They provide for a healthy, consistent environment and are a minimum standard to specific zones and uses as approved.
