Where the Township has determined that a complaint has been filed for a malicious or vexatious reason or as part of an ongoing pattern of harassment, the Township may cease its investigation and close the file.

Complaints about civil matters

The Township is often asked to become involved in matters which we have no legal authority. Civil matters that are not within the Township’s jurisdiction include (but are not limited to):

  • private right-of-way disputes,
  • trespassing, and
  • neighbour disputes over property lines, tree cutting, or fence locations 

If this type of matter can’t be resolved between you and your neighbour, you may wish to consult legal counsel.

Severances and Subdivisions of Property

If you’re interested in severing one or more pieces of property to sell, or give to a family member, you’ll need to fill out a Land Severance Application. This is a service provided by the County of Wellington.

Mailboxes

Owners are encouraged to install mailboxes at the maximum usable distance from the edge of the roadway. Ensure your mailbox is secured tightly on a sturdy post. Before installing or replacing a mailbox on the Township roadside, please refer to Canada Post’s Rural Mailbox Guidelines as well as the Township’s Mailbox Guidelines. Homeowners are responsible for repairing/replacing mailboxes and posts that are damaged by a snow plow.
