The purpose of the proposed Local Improvement By-Law is to establish the way that the Municipality will charge and enforce payment of charges for local improvements such as water systems and sewer systems. The properties to be rated or charged will be determined on a project by project basis and be included in, or added to, Schedule “A” of the By-law.
The purpose of the proposed Public Sewer By-Law is to outline the operational aspects of the sewer systems (i.e. the connection and disconnection process), define the manner in which sewer charges are calculated and assigned, and set out the specifications for what is acceptable to discharge to a public sewer.
The purpose of the proposed Livestock Control By-Law is to impose sanctions on people who do not take proper measures to control their livestock.
These by-laws are intended to replace the current Local Improvement, Public Sewers and Livestock at Large By-Laws.
