No Outdoor Entertainment on Hamilton Patios for Summer of 2018

Hamilton’s new patio entertainment by-law will not be decided by the Ontario Municipal Board in time for this year’s patio season.

This means the City’s previous ban on entertain on outdoor commercial patios will remain in effect for another patio season.

In a pre-hearing ruling issued Monday, the Ontario Municipal Board set hearing dates of September 25 to 27, 2018 for an appeal of the City’s new bylaw.
