The first step in disputing a penalty notice is to request that it be reviewed by a Screening Officer. This can be done in person during regular business hours (excluding holidays and other closures), or on-line. Please note that the powers of a Screening Officer are limited to reducing or cancelling a penalty notice only in certain circumstances involving errors in the issuance of the penalty notice, or in circumstances prescribed by bylaw. The Screening Officer must consider the full administrative penalty amount (fine) when reviewing the penalty notice.
Should you disagree with the decision of the Screening Officer, you may request review by a provincially-appointed adjudicator. There is a $25 fee for requesting an adjudication, which will be refunded should you be successful. When you receive the decision of the Screening Officer, additional information on the adjudication process will be provided to you.
In accordance with the Municipal By-Law Enforcement Act Enabling By-Law 59/2016, the screening officer must give a copy of the written reasons for the decision to the person who has requested the review.
Where a notice is referred to in this bylaw, the notice may be given by delivering it personally or to the last known address of the person or corporation, by mailing a copy by regular mail, or by electronic means.
