At the regular Council meeting on June 4, City Council adopted a Code of Conduct Bylaw. The purpose of the Bylaw is to establish standards of conduct for members of Council in the individual conduct of their official duties.
“The public is entitled to expect the highest standards of conduct from members that are elected to serve in local government,” said Mayor Barry Morishita. “These standards will help protect and maintain the City of Brooks’ reputation and integrity.”
The City currently has a Code of Conduct Policy; however, new changes to the Municipal Government Act require Council to adopt a Bylaw by July 23, 2018. The Bylaw regulates a wide range of conduct by elected officials, such as:
The Bylaw also provides a complaint system that addresses who can make a complaint and how they can make it, including determining the validity of a complaint and what sanctions may be imposed if a complaint is determined to be valid. The Bylaw must also be reviewed every four years.
