Citizens can call municipal by-law department to report individuals, businesses contravening emergency regulations

The City of Clarence-Rockland is advising citizens that municipal by-law officers can now enforce some provincial regulations. This measure follows Ontario’s order under the Emergency Management and Civil Protection Act.

Municipal By-Law officers will now be able to proactively monitor and respond to calls regarding:
—  Gatherings of more than five people in public or in private residences;
— People congregating in parks or using park amenities or equipment;
— Restaurants keeping their dining room open; and
— Nonessential retail businesses continuing to operate.

Officers will take an educational approach to these new measures and will take the opportunity to inform residents and businesses to the importance of following these rules.

Residents who witness these behaviours can leave a message at 613-446-6022, Monday to Friday, 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. They can also call
613-248-9826 after hours.
Complaints regarding the non-compliance of mandatory quarantine can be reported by calling the Ontario Provincial Police’s non-emergency line at 613-446-5124.

The City of Clarence-Rockland thanks residents for their cooperation during these difficult times.
