2. City Council request the Director of Court Services, in consultation with the City Solicitor, to request the Province to consider if additional sanctions can be applied where defendants are repeatedly committing offences (and in particular, offences that have the potential to impact public health and safety) in order to improve opportunities for enforcement where defendants continue to fail to pay the related defaulted fines.

 

3. City Council request the City Manager, in consultation with the City Solicitor, to request that the Province pass regulations that, despite subsection 165(3) of the Provincial Offences Act, will allow a defendant to apply to a justice to reduce or expunge a defaulted Provincial Offences Act fine where the defendant meets the criteria for inability to pay defined in the regulations.

 

4. City Council request the Director, Court Services, to ensure that outstanding Provincial Offences Act fines are assigned to and rotated from its collection agencies on a consistent and timely basis, in compliance with its collection procedures.

7. City Council request the Director, Court Services, to establish documentation standards to ensure that pertinent information about the collection actions taken for Provincial Offences Act fines in default are appropriately tracked and documented.

 

8.

9. City Council request the Director, Court Services, to:

 

a. undertake a review of unmatched driver's licence suspensions in ICON and the Ministry of Transportation's ARIS system, as well as other cases that need resolving, to determine whether additional cases with defaulted fines are eligible for suspension and take appropriate action; and

 

b. implement a process to periodically review or compare defaulted Provincial Offences Act fines eligible for licence suspensions and plate denials against data from the Ministry of Transportation to identify and resolve data synchronization issues and if necessary, the City Manager request the cooperation of the Ministry of the Attorney General and Ministry of Transportation.

2.  City Council amend Chapter 447, Fences, to remove maximum height requirements for any hedge, shrub, or other vegetation that acts as a fence, except when the hedge, shrub, or vegetation is within a 2.4 metre distance from a lot line abutting a public highway, other than a public lane.

 

Change Pool Enclosure Requirements

7.  City Council amend Chapter 447, Fences, to remove Section 447-3.F(3), which is a redundant section related to fence exemption applications, and direct that Section 447-5.C, which has a broader application, continues to apply.

c.  create an offence for failing to comply with a notice of violation or other order or direction made under the By-law;

 

d.  establish that directors or officers of a corporation knowingly concurring in the contravention of any offence under the By-law by the corporation are guilty of an offence; and
