City Obtains Fines in Building Permit Violations


February 1, 2011 – The City of Thunder Bay obtained two fines in Provincial Offences Court last week.

The first fine was a $1500 fine to a homeowner on Fairwinds Way who chose to build a garage at the back of the property without obtaining a building permit.
 
The second fine was a $750 fine to a business owner on Alloy Drive that chose to build an addition to his shop without obtaining a building permit.

Both owners pleaded guilty to the charges and are now still required to obtain their permits. A third case was remanded until March.
