Township of Norwich
Historical. Agricultural. Beautiful.
The Municipal Act, 2001,S.O. 2001, c. 25, at section 223.2, authorizes a municipality to establish a Code of Conduct for members of the Council of the municipality and of local boards of the municipality.
A Code of Conduct helps to ensure that members of Council, Local Boards and Committees share a common basis of acceptable conduct. These standards are designed to supplement to the legislative parameters within which members must operate. These standards should serve to enhance public confidence that Township’s elected and appointed representatives operate from a basis of integrity, justice, trust and courtesy.
The Township of Norwich is committed to the principles of Accountability and Transparency in its governance, operations, and activities. As part of this commitment, Council has enacted By-law 57-2017 governs the proceedings of the Council of the Township of Norwich and its Committees and Boards. This is to ensure that meetings of Council and its Boards and Committees, transpire in an open and accessible manner that allows members of the public opportunities to participate in the local decision-making process.
The Procedural By-law governs the calling, place, and proceedings by which Meetings of the Council occur, how Council discusses, deliberates, and make decisions on matters that affect the community, and also provides for such things as the Order of Business, Public Participation, and conditions under which a Closed Meeting may be held.
