Trustees have again asked for an in-depth report from bylaw enforcement staff on open bylaw enforcement files on Gabriola Island.
While going through their follow up action list at the Oct. 4 Local Trust Committee (LTC) meeting at the WI Hall, Trustee Gisele Rudischer noted that Bylaw Enforcement Coordinator Miles Drew was asked in February for the report, and the target date for delivering the report had been March.
Also noting that Regional Planning Manager Chris Jackson was at the meeting, Rudischer said she wanted to particularly bring the issue to his attention.
As previously reported, the LTC asked Drew for a detailed report on open Gabriola files, with a view to coming up with a bylaw enforcement strategy. The direction came out of a discussion about informing those who complain about bylaw infringements about the results of their complaints, so that community members don’t decide reporting infractions is not worth the bother. Trustees also suggested establishing a list of priorities on the order in which issues should be enforced.
Drew recommended that before establishing the priorities the LTC first get a sense of the nature of the issues through the report which has not, so far, been forthcoming.
This is the second time the Local Trust Committee (LTC) has reminded enforcement staff that trustees are waiting for the report, having also raised the issue in July.
