THAT the City of Greater Sudbury endorses the recommendation as outlined in the report entitled "Annual Status Report on Wrongdoing Hotline" from the Auditor General, presented at the Audit Committee meeting on October 24, 2017.

Relationship to the Strategic Plan / Health Impact Assessment

Providing semi-annual reports on the wrongdoing hotline supports the strategic goal of establishing responsive, fiscally prudent, open governance.  It also demonstrates the City's focus on openness, transparency and accountability in everything we do.

Report Summary

This report summarizes Hotline activities and provides information on the nature, status and disposition of specific complaints/allegations received between June 1 to December 31, 2016 as well as between January 1, 2017 to May 31, 2017 and for the year ended May 31, 2017. It also provides one recommendation to improve the effectiveness of Hotline support activities.

Financial Implications

The report recommends that the Auditor General’s Reserve be used to fund the costs for investigations of systemic or serious complaints about members of Council.   The reserve has sufficient funding to cover the costs for external investigators for several years.
