By-Law Enforcement Officers on Patrol this Weekend 
With the provincewide stay-at-home order now in effect, the City of Timmins Enforcement Services Department will have Municipal By-law Enforcement Officers on patrol this weekend to ensure area businesses are in compliance.

“We will be actively visiting all retail stores that are legislated to remain open during the lock down in order to enforce the provincial order and new regulations,” said Sherry Laneville, Supervisor of Enforcement Services. “We will also monitor any stores that must remain closed during this time.”

Many retailers that can be open have been provided direction if they must close off sections of their store as per the provincial legislation and will be inspected regularly.

The City of Timmins Enforcement Services Department has actively provided COVID-19 education to customers and retailers over the past year. Compliance is now mandatory and charges will be laid if found in contravention of the provincial order.

“Our department has always been available to give direction and have assisted many retailers and residents in navigating through the ever changing legislation,” added Laneville. “We are dedicated in keeping our community safe.”

The City of Timmins By-law Enforcement Officers work together with the Porcupine Health Unit and Timmins Police Service to help protect public safety.
