Noxious Weeds

You are here

The Municipal Law Enforcement Division enforces a provincial act called the Weed Control Act, R.S.O. 1990, c. Sections 3, 16 and 23.

Who is responsible for noxious weeds?

Every person that resides or owns property in the Town of Georgina is responsible for destroying noxious weeds on their property.

An appointed “weed inspector” may enter any property between June 15 and September 15 and take such action as is necessary to destroy the weeds.

If the remedial work is completed by the Town or its agent, the property owner is responsible for the payment of the costs. If those costs are left unpaid then it is added to the taxes for the property.
