Then why in the hell was a bylaw passed?
The public, should be able to rely on the fact that once a bylaw is passed the bylaw will be enforced.
But then this is the same County Council refused to enforcetheir tree cutting bylaw when Highlands was found in many proven contraventions of that bylaw. In fact one elected official stated at a public meeting that they had never enforced it before, so couldn't start now.
Why should non enforcement of the bylaw bother me?
The issue came up as a result of complaint to the OPP, County and Township of Melancthon about the gravel trucks from Strada "PARKING" every morning on County Road 17, 124 and the 4th Line of Melancthon for over an hour waiting to access the Strada site.
The morning of July 20 there were 16 trucks parked on that road before 6 a.m.
Recently the Court upheld a ruling that a municipality was found to be 2/3 at fault for the conditions of the road that left the two Deering sisters paralyized from the waist down.
If the County refuses to enforce their parking bylaw and when (NOT IF) someone plows into one of those many "parked" gravel trucks you can be sure the taxpayers will be the ones paying for Council's lack of leadership and enforcement on this issue.
UNLESS YOU ARE ON A COUNTY OF DUFFERIN ROAD
