The County of Barrhead has a number of bylaws in place for the regulation and control of various matters including land use, vehicle weight restrictions and speed limits on local roads, dog control, off highway vehicles, noise, unsightly premises, fire control and fireworks. Where citizen activities or property conditions don’t meet accepted municipal standards, the County may provide education, warnings, inspections, and apply penalties.
The County does not employ a Community Peace Officer. Our bylaw enforcement services, when required, are provided through contracted services from nearby municipalities. If you have a bylaw complaint, please contact the Executive Assistant to the CAO who will note the details of your complaint and determine the direction to be taken to remedy the problem, which MAY include utilizing the services of a Community Peace Officer.
