It’s important for owners to be aware of the rules and bylaws regarding parking. Parking stalls should be completely empty at all times except for bikes and empty hand trucks/carts. If there are items that do not fit this description that are left in parking stalls or common areas, they will be removed (at the cost of the owner) and a $100 fine will be issued.
Example of common items left in parking stalls that will result in removal and fines:
- plastic bags
- paper bags
- variety spray bottles
- baby seats
Owners that violate these rules will be fined $100 and forwarded any removal fees.
Please feel free to contact council if you notice anyone breaking the bylaws: firstname.lastname@example.org
