Staff continue to take calls regarding by-law enforcement at (705) 739-4241, but please note a reduction in enforcement of the parking and noise by-laws is currently in effect. Parking enforcement staff will be redeployed to safety and complaint matters.
Overnight on-street parking restrictions will no longer be enforced to encourage and support residents to stay at home to prevent further spread of COVID-19. If there is a winter event, the City will ask all residents to remove vehicles from the road to allow snow maintenance vehicles to properly clear the roads. The City will communicate a winter event by
e-bulletin, on barrie.ca/snow,
Twitter, and share with local media.
Enforcement staff will continue to enforce parking too close to or blocking intersections, driveways, fire hydrants, accessibility spaces, sidewalks as well as facing the wrong direction on the roadway. These parking restrictions are in place to ensure emergency vehicles access, public safety and appropriate traffic management.
In addition to parking, provisions in the noise by-law related to deliveries will not be enforced. This will allow grocery and other stores to receive deliveries of essential services and/or perishables at any time.
Enforcement Services administers and enforces City by-laws relating to business licensing, animal control, parks, signs, smoking, fireworks, firearms, motorized snow vehicles, snow removal, retail sales on municipal property, tree cutting, livestock evaluation, and parking on all city streets, fire routes and handicapped zones.
The section also administers and enforces all aspects of lottery licensing including the review and approval of applications, issuance of licences, review and analysis of reports, investigations and enforcement in accordance with the Criminal Code and Order-in-Council.
