Mississauga council will review its heating bylaw to ensure apartment landlords do not blast the heat when outdoor temperatures are well-above seasonal.

Councillors voted unanimously at the Sept. 27 council meeting to direct staff to review the wording and provisions in a city bylaw that dictates when landlords are required to provide adequate heating to apartment units.

Complaints have been trickling in to councillors’ offices and property management companies regarding the temperature of apartment units during September’s unprecedented heat wave, which saw temperatures hit as high as 31 C.
