Those residents that do have yards that are found to be in contravention of the bylaw will be issued a summary ticket, similar to a traffic ticket. The ticket and fine can be cancelled if the home owner cleans up the yard by a specified time. Failing to clean the yard during that time may result in further charges under the bylaw.
