The City of Hamilton would like to advise all property owners and tenants of the increase in by-law enforcement in the communities surrounding McMaster University. Effective Monday February 6, 2017, for one year, by-law enforcement staff will be reactively and proactively investigating Yard Maintenance related by-laws (i.e. Long Grass and Weeds, Garbage and Debris), Solid Waste Management (ie storage of waste collection containers, improper waste at the curb) and Snow and Ice (sidewalks and walkways clear for safe pedestrian passage). A reminder, if a yard maintenance or property standard violation is found, it is the property owner's responsibility to ensure it is corrected and pay for any potential fines.Read more →
