Selkirk-Waterfront-11

The City of Selkirk enforces its by-laws though our professional By-Law Enforcement Officers. Our approach to by-law enforcement is secure compliance by first offering awareness and education about the City’s by-laws. By-laws are created to help citizens live together in harmony and security. When education and advice are not effective, Officers issue citations which may come with financial penalties enforced by the courts.
