Three commercial properties will be issued warnings under the Resort Municipality's dangerous and unsightly premises bylaw.

The municipality's council moved to send warning letters to at least three properties during its monthly meeting on July 20, held via video conference. Councillors discussed the motion in-camera then approved it immediately afterward.

Mayor Matthew Jelley listed three commercial properties that will receive warnings – those of Ocean Drive Clothing, Cavendish Lobster Shack and Silverwood Motel.

"Properties where there is construction debris or long grass," he said.

Letters will be issued to the property owners, who will have up to 90 days to bring the property into compliance unless otherwise arranged. If the owner does not comply they could be fined anywhere between $150 to $1,500, and could potentially get jail time, according to the municipality's bylaw document.
