Minor bylaw dispute process initiated

Starting today, the City of Kelowna joins with eight other local municipalities to move the process of

resolving bylaw ticket disputes related to minor infractions out of the provincial court system and into an independent adjudication process.

The partnership includes the cities of Kelowna, Vernon and Penticton, the districts of West Kelowna, Lake Country, Peachland and Summerland, the Town of Oliver and the Regional District of Okanagan Similkameen. The new system will streamline the local government process for resolving minor bylaw violation disputes by providing residents with flexible options to pay and a new process to dispute these Bylaw Offence Notices.
