Town of Carleton Place by-law officers and OPP are continuing to patrol parks and streets, using an educational approach to ensure the public’s compliance with provincial orders to limit gatherings to no more than 5 persons, operations of non-essential businesses and use of park facilities and equipment. Officers patrolling are reporting that there are still people using park facilities and equipment, as well as congregating in larger groups. If this continues, tickets and fines will be issued as required. Please take the necessary precautions to protect yourself and the community. Anyone wishing to report suspected violations is asked to call the OPP 24/7 non-emergency line at 1-888-310-1122.
