A report from Corporate Administrator Rosa Miller for tonight's City Council session, is set to outline a new approach towards the resolution of minor bylaw infractions.
With City staff recommending that the City work with the Ministry of Attorney General to appoint an adjudicator that would replace the Provincial Court system as the course of resolution towards unpaid fines.
The report which is included in tonight's Agenda Package, notes of the volume of lost revenue that such a measure might be able to return to the civic coffers.
The cost of bylaw adjudication system will vary depending on the volume of bylaw infractions. Currently, municipalities who participate in an adjudication process see an increase in payment of fines of an average of 40%.
