Bylaw Enforcement Print Article Font Size


The Town of Golden’s Bylaw Enforcement function provides the citizens of Golden with a variety of services related to regulatory issues. Some of the Town of Golden’s bylaws require a proactive approach, but primarily we respond reactively on a complaint-driven basis. The Bylaw Enforcement function is committed to the delivery of professional bylaw enforcement services in a timely effective manner, in accordance, with Council direction. You can view the Town's Bylaw Enforcement Policy HERE.

The Bylaw Enforcement function attempts to first gain compliance through education and communication but ultimately, where required, through enforcement actions such as issuing tickets or seeking resolution through the Bylaw Adjudication System.
