Why does city select which rules to enforce?

If it’s not property owners absolving themselves from maintaining their property, it’s out-of-control building contractors and developers.

Why does the City of Surrey permit slack enforcement on building contractor operations within its city limits?

If it’s not derelict property or property owners absolving themselves from maintaining their property, it’s out-of-control building contractors and developers who unlawfully log trees that are meant to stay in place for landscapes.

It’s also contractors that use noisy polluting gas electrical generators when electrical power by Hydro is readily available, or dusty and muddy roads left muddy by contractors when they have completed building operations in our residential areas of Clayton Heights.

Why does city hall select enforcement of rules for certain activities, but ask everyone else to follow parking rules or noise rules,  or permit vacant derelict residential property to pose dangers for children playing in the area?

Where are the city engineering and bylaw departments?
