An Act Relative to the Effective Enforcement of Municipal Ordinances and Bylaws

H1864: An Act Relative to the Effective Enforcement of Municipal Ordinances and Bylaws (filed in the Senate as S1076 by Senator Eldridge.)

Local municipal boards, including conservation commissions, have the authority to administer a variety of important land use and other bylaws, ordinances and regulations, and need adequate enforcement tools. The current tools are lacking, leading to willful violations of local laws. This bill gives court judges specific guidance on calculating a penalty as well as the right to enforce payment and dispose injunctive relief.
