The Verdun borough’s six inspectors patrol the streets daily. Each is assigned to a specific sector in order to better meet the needs of citizens. Inspectors:
- approve plans and project specifications for work carried out by citizens across the borough;
- deliver permits and ensure that work is compliant;
- monitor to ensure compliance with municipal regulations pertaining to sanitation, maintenance and cleanliness of residential units, nuisances and public peace, etc;
- verify the merits of complaints filed by citizens and ensure follow-up.
Problem to solve?
If you believe the by-law concerning the sanitation and maintenance of dwelling units is not being respected in your building, please complete the following steps before you file a complaint with the borough:
- First, try to reach a friendly agreement with the owner or tenant not complying with the by-law.
- Failing that, notify the person concerned about the problem by registered mail (formal demand), requesting that he or she resolve the problem within a reasonable delay. Keep a copy of the letter and the post office receipt.
- If the problem persists in spite of your efforts, contact the borough so that inspectors can act to resolve it.
Municipal inspectors may:
- Enter a building or dwelling unit to inspect it;
- Require an expert assessment;
- Require that corrective measures be taken;
- Impose fines;
- Rectify a situation involving non-compliance;
- Evacuate and close a dwelling unit deemed unsanitary.
