Letter: Bylaws work 9-5, Mon-Fri when everyone’s behaving

Most people break bylaws when they are home from work…

Bylaw officers don’t work when most bylaws being broken

To the editor:

I encourage everyone to call the Regional District of the Central Okanagan (RDCO) 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 the long weekend.

We called RDCO about a bylaw infraction on Friday before the 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.

On Tuesday we were told no, because they were too busy with their prior work load.

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