COUNCIL CODE OF CONDUCT

A written Code of Conduct helps to ensure that the Members of Council share a common basis for acceptable conduct.  These standards are designed to provide a reference guide and a supplement to the legislative parameters within which the members must operate.  These standards should serve to enhance public confidence that Township’s elected representatives operate from a base of integrity, justice and courtesy.

A copy of the Code of Conduct can be found here.

How to File a Complaint If you believe that a member of Council has breached the Code of Conduct, you may request an investigation by the Integrity Commissioner.  The form can be found here.

Approved 2016 Council meeting dates: January 14th, February 4th and 18th, March 3rd and 17th, April 7th and 21st, May 5th and 19th, June 2nd and 16th, July 7th and 21st, August 11th, September 1st and 15th, October 6th and 20th, November 3rd and 17th, December 1st and 15th. Please be advised that Council can always add additional Committee of the Whole, special, public and/or emergency meetings during the year as required.

PUBLIC QUESTION PERIOD - Council requests that questions be submitted ahead of the meeting (Thursday 12 Noon prior to the meeting).  Each person will be allowed to ask one question, either written or oral, during this time, and one question for clarification purposes only after the answer is given on the original question.  Public Question Period is held after Point of Privilege or Personal Privilege on the agenda for a maximum of 20 minutes. If less time is required and there are no further questions, the Mayor/Chair will declare Public Question Period to be closed and carry on with the regular business of the meeting, or if time permits, individuals will be allowed to ask an additional question.  Also with time permitting, anyone wishing to make a comment may do so and Council may choose to respond to the comment if felt to be in the Public interest.

In the event that questions are not submitted in advance of the meeting, they may not be answered and deferred until the next meeting of Council. Also, a question arising from the posted material on the website may be asked at the meeting and does not necessarily have to be received in writing.  Council still reserves the right to defer any question if they are not able to answer it at the meeting.

NOTE: All Meetings are held at the Township Office, unless otherwise determined by Council.
