Subject: North Kawartha Open Air Bylaw amendments
Recommendation: That the North Kawartha Council approve the amendments to the
North Kawartha Open Air Bylaw as presented
Background: Council requested that North Kawartha Open Air By-Law 24/11 be
reviewed and amended to reflect a fine system for infractions of the
open air bylaw that did not require a fire department response due
to an out of control fire.
Analysis: North Kawartha Open Air By-Law 24/11 has been amended as
attached. The areas changed are highlighted in red.
Basically the By-law has had a fine schedule added as detailed in
Schedule E. This fine schedule applies to situations where
someone is caught not following the provisions of the Open Air By-
Law but the fire is not out of control requiring fire apparatus to
respond to extinguish the fire.
