At the September 23rd Clearview Council Meeting Council directed staff to take a proactive enforcement approach to enforcing Property Standards & Property Maintenance By-laws. This provides Clearview By-law enforcement officers with an opportunity to get ahead of some situations and deter future by-law infractions.
The Property Standards By-law covers many subject areas such as unmaintained or damaged building interiors and exteriors, insufficient or failed heating systems, the safety of stairs, porches and ramps etc.
The full Property Standards By-law, prescribing standards for the maintenance and occupancy of properties is available on our website at www.clearview.ca/government-committees/laws-policies. The most frequently requested By-laws are available here with a convenient search function.
For more information on how enforcement works, how to make a complaint or how to make an appeal visit https://www.clearview.ca/municipal-services/bylaw-enforcement/property-standards, in addition a Property Maintenance Standards brochure is also available at the Administration Centre Office located at 217 Gideon Street in Stayner.
