Council also to discuss proposal to hire an integrity commissioner for Greater Sudbury

Sudbury city council faces a full agenda tonight for its first regular meeting after the summer slowdown.

On the agenda is the first report from the city's new closed door meeting investigator, ironically dealing with allegations about the firing of the previous investigator.

But the report said there is no evidence that city councillors met secretly or improperly to discuss the firing of Ombudsman Andre Marin back in February.

Council will also revisit the proposal by Mayor Marianne Matichuk to hire an integrity commissioner, which last time sparked a fiery debate around the council table.

But the meeting starts off with a presentation from CP Rail about the safety of its lines running through Greater Sudbury, as well as the downtown trainyard, which some in the community believe should be moved.
