Municipal election primer: how many reps are needed at meeting?

Do your municipal reps like spending your money on out-of-town meetings?

At the Association of Municipalities of Ontario’s 2018 meeting (August 19-22), Brantford, Ontario City Council felt the urge to send eight, count them—8—reps:

  • The Mayor
  • The Mayor’s Chief of Staff
  • Three City Councillors (one of whom retires in two months)
  • The CAO
  • The GM of Community Development
  • The Director of Strategic Planning and Community Partners

Hmm, we wonder if they attempted to reduce the four days, three nights tab by sharing rooms?
