A bylaw is a law of the municipality passed by the municipal council. A bylaw is prepared when:
- The council is delegating responsibility;
- Residents are required or permitted to do or not do an action under section 8 of The Municipalities Act; and
- Provincial or federal legislation requires a matter to be dealt with by bylaw.
The Town of Milestone has several Bylaws to ensure our community’s quiet residential nature and the residents’ safety and comfort. For your benefit and information, the following is a “short list” of those guidelines/bylaws covering the most frequent situations in our community.
The Town of Milestone appoints a Bylaw Enforcement Officer to investigate infractions. This includes (but is not limited to) tickets for on-street parking, RV storage (in months prohibited), weeds, nuisance concerns, and dog violations.
