Fences and Livestock Valuer



Thames Centre has a Division Fence Cost Apportionment By-law.  This by-law allows for boundary fence disputes to be handled between landowners as a civil matter, without utilizing municipal resources, therefore eliminating the need to maintain Fence Viewer Appointments.

The Protection of Livestock and Poultry from Dogs Act requires the Council of every local municipality to appoint one or more Livestock Valuers. The Council has appointed two (2) Livestock Valuers to investigate livestock claims.

The Livestock Valuer investigates the claims and determines the amount to be paid to the owner of the injured/killed livestock.
