GARAGE SALE SIGN  TOWN OF VIRDEN BY-LAW 

The Town of Virden has erected a garage sale sign bulletin board adjacent to the Virden Farmer’s Market Building.  Residents are encouraged to use this area to post their garage sale sign.  The sign may be posted 10 days prior to the sale and must be removed within 24 hours after the sale.

 

Town of Virden By-law No. 2666 states that no person shall suspend, fasten or place any poster, banner, or device advertising a garage sale on or over a street or upon a structure, utility pole, traffic control device, tree or vehicle in a street.  Residents conducting the garage sale shall place one garage sale sign on his/her property or on the Town boulevard fronting or flanking their property on the day immediately preceding and the day of the garage sale. 

 

The Town of Virden has the authority to remove anything that contravenes with this by-law.  Copies of this by-law are available at the Town Office, 236 Wellington Street West.

 


 

Animal By-law 

Subject to by-law no. 2614, No owner shall:

 

            (a) permit his animal to run at large.  When an animal is found running at large, its owner shall be deemed to have failed or refused to comply with this subsection.

 

            (b) permit his animal to defecate in any public or private property other than the property of its owner.  Where an animal defecates on property other than the property of its owner, the owner shall cause such excrement to be removed forthwith.

Dog & Cat License Renewals

The 2013 Dog and Cat tags are available at the Town Office. Town of Virden By-Law No. 2599 requires that each dog and cat must be licensed. The purpose of a license is to enable the animal control officer to determine the pet’s owner should the pet be impounded.  When a non-licensed dog or cat is impounded, the animal control officer can not determine the owner.  Impounded cats and dogs are housed for a 72 hour period and if not claimed they are disposed of. Should your dog or cat go missing, please check with the Town Office at 748-2440.

Compost Transfer Station

 

The Town of  Virden would like to ask the co-operation of the general public in the use of the compost transfer station located on Anniversary Road.  While the majority of users treat the facility with respect, there are still individuals who continue to abuse the facility by throwing plastic bags, tree branches, garbage and other foreign material in the compost or around the bin.  THIS ABUSE DESTROYS THE VALUE OF THE COMPOST!!!  Thank you for your co-operation!
