The Township of Essa has implemented an Administrative Monetary Penalty System (AMPS) to complement its Automated Speed Enforcement Program (ASE).
AMPS has been implemented to assist residents with achieving a resolution in a timely manner as opposed to infractions being filtered through the Provincial Offences Court.
If you would like to speak to a staff member with respect to a Penalty Order or you have questions about Essa's Automated Speed Enforcement Program please contact us at 1-877-748-1025.
AMPS is otherwise known as an Administrative Monetary Penalty (AMP) System. It is a financial penalty that is imposed by a regulatory body for a contravention of a law or a requirement. An AMP is a flexible enforcement tool used by municipalities to obtain compliance.
For options available to those whom receive a Penalty Order through our ASE Program are outlined on Penalty Order webpage to find out your options.
1. You can either pay the ticket; or
2. You can request a review of the Penalty Order by a Screening Officer. You have 30 days from the time the Penalty Order is issued to request a meeting. Screening Officer reviews are held virtually on pre-determined dates.
If you are unsatisfied with the decision of the Screening Officer, you can request a review of the Screening Decision to the Hearing Officer. The Hearing Officer's decision is final.
