Closed Sessions

In some cases Malahide Township's Council will need to meet privately to address confidential matters.  These closed meetings are not open to the public and are governed by the rules set out in Section 239 of the Municipal Act. Generally, municipal councils, local boards and their committees hold their meetings in public. They meet behind closed doors on occasion to deal with some matters. For example, if Council is considering purchasing a piece of land or if Council must deal with a labour relations issue, then it is appropriate that it be able to do so at a closed meeting. 

Anyone wishing to question the appropriateness of a meeting of Council or a committee that was closed to the public may submit a Closed Meeting Complaint Form. A Closed Meeting Investigator will decide whether an investigation is warranted and if so, conduct an investigation and submit the findings and recommendations to an open meeting of Council.
