More input needed on Cornwall code of conduct

(Newswatch Group/File)

CORNWALL – The city is asking once again for public input on a proposed code of conduct for councillors and local boards.

With the code now written, the city wants feedback on the document before approving it at a future council meeting.

You can find the code and the survey link here.

The 21-page document mostly echoes the oath of office taken by councillors when they were sworn into office last year as well as outlining the roles and responsibilities of various city positions and hiring principles.

There are a number of citations to legislation already in the Municipal Act.

Coun. Brock Frost first introduced the idea of a code of conduct in April as well as hiring an integrity commissioner as part of his election promises.

In May, the city had a similar online survey to get public feedback on the parameters for the code.

The exercise had been part of this administration’s mantra of transparency and accountability.
