Prince Edward County is expecting their by-law department will be quite busy with the newest set of downloading regulations onto municipalities.
Robert McAuley, the Commission of Engineering, Development and Works presented council with a report to put a new Property Standards by-law in place in the County at their committee of the whole meeting on Thursday afternoon.
As of July 1, the County will be responsible for enforcing the Residential Tenancies Act Standards.
He told councillors there has been no funding put in place to deal with this additional workload.
While the property standards by-law is a complaints driven by-law, he isn’t sure exactly how much time it will take up.
Councillor Kevin Gale said this is a huge task for by-law officers to take on, on top of their regular tasks.
