OMBUDSMAN OFFICE INVESTIGATING ANOTHER CLOSED SESSION MEETING IN NORFOLK
5/19/2017 4:08:58 PM

Norfolk County is once again under investigation by Ontario's Ombudsman regarding a closed session meeting.
          
On March 14th, Council went in camera to discuss two private matters: The Appointment of a New County Manager and a Port Dover Community Health Centre Board Request.
        
In a letter sent to our elected officials from the Ombudsman's Office received a complaint alleging that the matters discussed in private regarding the Port Dover Community Health Centre should have been done in a public matter.
    
Mayor Charlie Luke elaborating on this request a couple of weeks ago to myFM, noting that the Board was looking for financial assistance from our elected officials to help pay off outstanding invoices and finances following the groups sudden disbanding in August of 2016.
     
Our elected officials ultimately voted not to provide any money to the group.
        
Once the Ombudsman's Office concludes their investigation, they will issue a report on their findings which will be made public.
       
This is the fourth time the Ombudsman has been called in to investigate council's action since the first incident occurred in December 2015.
