Administrative Monetary Penalty (AMP)

The AMP system is designed to streamline the enforcement of, and increase compliance with, Township of Havelock-Belmont-Methuen by-laws. Under AMP, Penalty Notice disputes are handled by the township through the use of Screening and Hearing Officers who are able to modify, cancel, or otherwise affirm penalties. The purpose of this method is to reduce congestion in the courts and to provide a local (township) resolution affording an accessible, transparent, and streamlined dispute resolution process.

As mentioned, the method in which the AMP system is enforced is conducted through the use of a Penalty Notice. A Penalty Notice is only enforced by HBM personnel who have been provided authority through the Havelock-Belmont-Methuen Township Council.

Penalty Notices are issued for contraventions of various Township by-laws, of which it draws its authority through the AMP By-law 2023-85.
