In November 2020, Innisfail Town Council initiated an external, independent investigation of matters associated with council’s upholding of its code of conduct (as established through the ‘Council Code of Conduct Bylaw’ 1612-2018). SAGE Analytics Inc. was appointed to conduct the review, and to ultimately present findings back to council at a later date.
A summary report was accordingly presented to council during the non-public (in-camera) portion of the Jan. 25, 2021 regular meeting. Following discussion on the matter at that time, the following motion was approved:
“That council receive and consider the SAGE Investigation Report on the Council Code of Conduct matter C-03-2021 involving Councillor Donnie Hill.”
Council is now considering the information outlined within the investigation report involving Councillor Hill. The code of conduct investigation remains ongoing regarding other matters with the understanding further information will be presented to council at a future meeting.
Council thanks members of the public for their continued patience as the investigation continues.
