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 looking after By-Law issues for both municipalities.

The By-Law Enforcement Officer responds to complaints lodged by residents of the Township and investigates any incidents in order to determine if a violation has taken 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.

By-Law Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

Q. Can I operate a business from my home?  May I have horses, cattle, chickens etc. on my property?

A. You will need to contact the Planning Department (613-925-4231 ext. 101 or by email planner@augusta.ca) with the address for the property so they can investigate what is and is not allowed on that property based on the Township’s Zoning By-Law (2965-2012).

 

Q. Does the Township have a noise By-Law?  How can I get my neighbours to stop making so much noise?

A. The Township does not have a noise By-Law.  This is considered a civil matter between you and your neighbour.
