Bill Blakes, Manager
I tried calling Bill Blakes, but he does not answer nor pick up his calls. The Information Line took my complaint and said they would dispatch an investigator. Note that it can take up to 70 hrs for an investigator to arrive, but they do eventually arrive.
I often call non-emergency Toronto police. Their number is 416-808-2222, where you can report street lights off, traffic lights that malfunction, broken street signs, or minor fender benders. For major events call 911.
For neighbours parking their vehicles on sidewalks, call the police number at 416-808-2222 and ask for parking enforcement. They will dispatch someone to your area. Parking on the sidewalk blocks access for children, pedestrians and parents with strollers.
The City of Toronto has a three hour limit for street parking on all streets. If you find someone parking in front of your house and this bothers you then you can call, but note that the Parking Authority will ticket ALL the cars on the street and vicinity, not just the one you asked about.
Parking on the sidewalk is illegal. Parking on the space between the sidewalk and the road, called the boulevard, is also technically illegal, but tolerated. If you are nice to your neighbours they will not complain. Home owners do not own the sidewalk or boulevard. These are owned by the City of Toronto.
