The Dangerous, Hazardous and Unsightly Premises Bylaw (CS-11) was established to help keep the City clean, safe and attractive. 

What does the bylaw cover?

The Dangerous, Hazardous and Unsightly Premises Bylaw is applicable to properties that do not meet the general condition and state of tidiness of the City.
