The City of Hamilton is responsible for the investigation and enforcement of all municipal by-laws. By-law Enforcement is a service provided to ensure public safety and a clean and green environment for the citizens of Hamilton.
Municipal Law Enforcement includes community building and neighbourhood education about City by-laws. Activities include public education, complaint handling, mediation, and enforcement and investigation of complaints relating to the following by-laws: Property Standards, Zoning, Yard Maintenance, Noise, Heat, Illegal Dumping and all other related by-laws (over 52). This area also proactively blitzes identified areas of the city to ensure compliance.
Parking Enforcement provides proactive and reactive parking enforcement of on-street and off-street parking by-laws ensuring public safety, traffic flow and effective customer parking in business areas and on private property.
The Hamilton Municipal Parking System is a self-sustaining business unit, financed entirely by user fees and fines, which manages the life-cycle of the municipal parking system – from planning, design and construction to operation, maintenance and enforcement – in support of the residential and business communities, and the City’s land use, transportation and economic development initiatives.
