Municipal Enforcement Officers work with citizens to ensure that Oromocto's basic community standards are complied with.

Where citizen activities or property conditions don't meet acceptable municipal standards, By-Law Enforcement Officers provide education, warnings, inspections, and/or penalties.  The Town encourages safety, cleanliness, and livability practices through the use of its By-Law Enforcement Officers, NBSPCA Animal Control Officers and RCMP.  

Investigating and Enforcing Bylaw Complaints

In addition to Planning and Compliance By-Law Enforcement Officers the Town also provides enforcement authorities to the NBSPCA Animal Control Officer and to the RCMP to investigate complaints from citizens relating to bylaw violations.  The common violations include animal care and control, parking and property maintenance.

If you are found to have violated a bylaw:
