A homeowner and a business owner have been fined for building on their properties without the proper permits.
The City of Thunder Bay announced Tuesday that it had obtained the two fines in provincial offences court last week.
The first fine was $1,500 and levied against a homeowner on Fairwinds Way. The homeowner received the fine after building a garage at the back of the property without obtaining a building permit.
The second fine was $750 and was levied against a business owner on Alloy Drive. The court heard how the business owner built an addition to his shop without getting a building permit.
Both owners pleaded guilty to the charges. They are still required to get the permits.
A third case was adjourned until March.
