Council agrees to Rescind Ombudsman Fee

Council has agreed that there should be no fee for submitting a complaint to the Town Ombudsman and Integrity Commissioner and will be amending the bylaw.

Our original delegation to Council was done on October 23, 2017. The full presentation and background material can be found here.

Due to incorrect information being presented to Council and the media reporting it incorrectly, we had to come back to do another delegationon on November 20, 2017 to set the record straight. Here is the background material leading to this delegation:

Staff Report incorrectly states there is no fee
