Meeting History

May 6, 2020 4:30 PM Video Council Special Council Meeting

Councillor P. Meagher raised the question of why Councillor J. Peddle would have a pecuniary interest in the proposed Flood Response Bylaw, noting that if a majority of Council had been affected by the flood, they would not be required to declare a pecuniary interest.

Chris Davis, Acting Director, Legal Services, indicated that, in his opinion, Councillor J. Peddle did not have to declare a pecuniary interest under section 170 of the Municipal Government Act.

Recess

A recess occurred from 6:23 p.m. to 6:27 p.m.

Councillor M. Allen returned to the meeting at 6:28 p.m.

Peddle’s decision to declare a pecuniary interest in the 2020 Flood Response Bylaw.
