By-Laws

The Municipal Act grants Council the authority to pass  certain By-Laws to govern affairs of the municipality. A By-Law is the written voice of Council and addresses issues and concerns of the local community.

The Council of the Township of Augusta appoints By-Law Enforcement Officer(s) with the authority to enforce By-Laws passed in the Township as per By-Law 3527-2021.

Augusta Township joined forces with the Town of Prescott and hired Samantha Hansen who will be the looking after By-Law issues for both Augusta and Prescott.

The By-Law Enforcement Officer responds to complaints lodged by residents of the Township and investigates any incidents in order to determine if there is a violation taking place. If a violation is noted, the Enforcement Officer follows the procedure established in relation to that particular By-Law in order to rectify the situation.

If you have By-Law related questions or complaints, you can reach Samantha Hansen via email or by phone 613-925-2812 ext. 6205.
