Disputing Bylaw Offence Notice

To dispute a Bylaw Notice, complete a Bylaw Notice Dispute Form no later than 14 days from the date the Bylaw Notice was issued.  

The Bylaw Notice Dispute Form is provided to the Town’s Screening Officer who will work with the disputant to present their side of the incident. 

The Screening Officer may uphold, dismiss or enter into a compliance agreement (if applicable) with the disputant.  

If the disputant is not satisfied with the determination of the Screening Officer the disputant may request a Bylaw Adjudication Hearing.  Instructions will be provided to the disputant upon the completion of the review by the Screening Officer.  An independent adjudicator will determine whether a bylaw infraction occurred.  If the adjudicator determines that the infraction occurred, the full penalty will be applied as well as an adjudication fee of $25.  If the adjudicator determines that no bylaw violation has occurred, no fine or adjudication fee will be applied.
