Essex Town Council has authority to pass by-laws to, among other things, ensure a safe, quiet and peaceful environment for residents.

The Clerk’s Office maintains a registry of by-laws and amendments enacted by Council that have wide application. To view a list of by-laws in numeric or alphabetical order, or to search by keyword for something specific, use the By-law Registry located on the Laserfiche WebLink system hosted by the County of Essex.

By-law Enforcement

Our by-law enforcement team is responsible for the investigation and enforcement of some of our municipal by-laws. Other by-laws are enforced by police or other government departments.
