Today, General Committee was provided with a report and presentation outlining proposed updates for the City’s Property Standards By-law. The proposed changes are being recommended to help City staff address property standards and lot maintenance issues.
The proposed changes include:
“Mississauga is a beautiful city and we want to keep it that way. Currently, we do not charge fees for repeated non-compliance and conduct proactive inspections when a health and safety risk is identified during a reactive inspection,” said Michael Foley, Acting Director, Enforcement. “We’re confident the new pilot program and proposed fees will provide stronger deterrents, enhance our responsiveness to by-law violations and help us achieve voluntary compliance.”
During the pilot program, staff will evaluate costs, benefits and the feasibility of implementing a permanent proactive service level in the future.
The proposed updates to the Property Standards By-law will go to Council for approval on April 20.
