A request has been sent to the province for municipalities to recover more Provincial Offences fines. At last night’s meeting, Town of Parry Sound council passed a resolution asking the province to consider eliminating the cherry picking of outstanding fines so that the oldest outstanding fine in paid first. Director of Finance Trevor Pinn says a number of fines are linked to licence suspensions and those seem to be paid on time even though they may be less than a person’s other outstanding fines. The resolution also asks that outstanding fines be allowed to be rolled onto property taxes and that a memorandum of understanding be provided to all municipalities in Ontario so that inter-municipal agreements are not required in order to collect fines from other municipalities. The resolution has been sent to the Premier, our MPP, multiple provincial ministries, and the rest of the West Parry Sound municipalities for support.
