Update: Second Code of Conduct investigation

October 27, 2021 7:18 PM

An investigation stemming from a code of conduct complaint received by City Council on May 7, 2021, was closed in early October and remains confidential under the Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act (FOIP). While the review remains protected under FOIP, there are administrative elements, such as the cost, that do not fall under this act.

At the time the report was released, full costs were not yet known. Since that time, The City of Red Deer has finalized costs, and this information has been shared, upon request.

The full cost of the review and investigation is $107,000.

All municipalities in Alberta are required by the Municipal Government Act (MGA) to have a Code of Conduct Bylaw that sets shared expectations for conduct or behaviour. The bylaw outlines how members should conduct themselves while carrying out their responsibilities and establishes a review and investigation process when a complaint is received. The City of Red Deer passed its Code of Conduct Bylaw (2608-2018) on July 23, 2018.

On October 8, 2021, City Council passed a resolution directing the confidential report be shared with the City Manager to prepare a confidential memorandum outlining “lessons learned” to be brought back to Council in the first quarter of 2022.
