Public Registry - Council Members who declare Pecuniary Interest

Public Registry for Council Members who have declared Pecuniary Interest

A new section 5.1 of the Municipal Conflict of Interest Act requires a member to file a written statement after the member discloses a pecuniary interest under section 5. A new section 5.2 of the Act prohibits a member from influencing certain decisions or recommendations where the member has a pecuniary interest in the matter being considered.

New section 6.1 of the Act requires municipalities and local boards to establish and maintain registries that keep copies of statements filed under section 5.1 and of declarations recorded under section 6.
