Bylaw enforcement

Resident questions Regional District of Central Okanagan procedures

I encourage everyone to call the Regional District of Central Okanagan and ask why there is no bylaw enforcement on weekends in the RDCO, but there is bylaw enforcement on weekends in Lake Country ticketing the model airplane flying club for camping each day of a long weekend?

We called RDCO about a bylaw infraction on the Friday before a long weekend and left a message on the answering machine, and by Tuesday, we called again to find out if the bylaw will be enforced yet on Tuesday.

We were told no, because they are too busy with their prior workload.

The RCMP tell us they will not attend to bylaw infractions either. Most people break bylaws when they are home from work, but bylaws only work normal working hours like everyone else.

Why is bylaw not working when people are off work, instead of working when everyone is at work?
