Lumby idles enforcement

On Monday, council adopted a bylaw amendment that would prohibit a vehicle from idling for more than three minutes

Lumby officials insist they won’t be heavy-handed when it comes to new anti-idling rules.

On Monday, council adopted a bylaw amendment that would prohibit a vehicle from idling for more than three minutes as a way of reducing pollution.

“It’s really about education and being better environmental stewards,” said Mayor Kevin Acton.

“We hope people will be more aware of running their cars.”

Acton says the bylaw will be complaint driven and village staff will not actively be looking for infractions.

Failure to comply could result in a $100 fine.
