City examines good neighbour bylaw

Williams Lake city council is looking at options for creating a good neighbour bylaw.

Williams Lake city council is looking at options for creating a good neighbour bylaw.

At its regular meeting Tuesday, council received a report from the senior bylaw officer on the draft of a good neighbour bylaw which encompasses almost all enforceable residential property issues within one bylaw.

The draft bylaw will be referred to the social planning council for comments, and staff will develop a consultation plan and begin the process of public consultation on the proposed bylaw and report back to committee of whole council.

Moving to the good neighbour bylaw concept will allow staff to more efficiently enforce residential related issues, and would be a convenient resource for residents.

The Union of British Columbia Municipalities has endorsed the Community Plan.
