The township has begun the legal process required to deal with the si- tuation. “We’ve issued an order,” he said, citing the property standards bylaw. The township has posted a sign at the property site declaring the wreckage as dangerous and requiring demolition under the bylaw. Daigneault said that under law the owner is deemed to have been served notice.
