WITH VIDEO: Perth council presses pause on cancelling anti-idling bylaw

By Desmond Devoy, InsideOttawaValley, February 19, 2020 Perth’s anti-idling bylaw is not perfect, but it is staying on the books – for now. That was the decision of Perth town council on Tuesday, Feb. 18; they voted to defer a final decision on repealing an anti-idling bylaw after it had gotten preliminary approval for a repeal earlier this month.

“I’d like to see some methodology to make some changes to it (the bylaw) so it is more comprehensive,” said Coun. Judy Brown, noting that there was nothing in the bylaw, as it currently stands, to account for when it is too hot, or cold, and a car needs to be cooled down, or warmed up.
