Title

Code of Conduct Bylaw

Recommended Action

Whereas the City of Port Moody has recently adopted
(July 24th, 2018) a new 'Code of Conduct' Bylaw for Municipal Council members;

 

Whereas it is the first of its kind in our province, although modelled after a template used in Alberta; and

 

Whereas it incorporates mechanisms to hold Councillors accountable including the implementation of informal and formal complaint processes as well as possible sanctions that may be imposed if a complaint is upheld;

 

Therefore be it resolved that staff review this 'Code of Conduct' Bylaw and report back as to its applicability for implementation in the Township of Langley, noting what its strengths are and what would need to happen for it to become a reality in the Township.
