Council Appoints Closed Meeting Investigator

The City of Greater Sudbury Council has appointed the Ontario Ombudsman as its closed
meeting investigator for this term of Council, which ends on November 30, 2018. Each
municipality is required to have an investigator to ensure compliance with the closed meeting
provisions of the Municipal Act.

Citizens who believe that Council has not complied with provisions of the Municipal Act
pertaining to closed meetings that have occurred after today’s date can make a complaint with
the Ombudsman’s office. The closed meeting investigation process covers all municipal boards
and committees, with the exception of school boards, conservation authorities, police services
boards, and public library boards.

Further information on the Ombudsman’s office can be found at
The Capreol Press Will Be Making Changes Soon

During the months of February and March, Capreol Graphics will
cease to offer customized apparel and headwear.
We will also be moving to 12 Young St. and concentrating our
efforts on improving The Capreol Press newspaper. As we begin
our 7th. year of publishing the paper we hope to not only improve
the content but also increase readership and distribution.

Capreol Graphics will still offer photo copying, document
laminating and fax services. We hope to be your go-to source for
all of your printing needs! Including, event tickets, raffle tickets,
posters and business cards. There will even be free next day
delivery in Capreol on orders of $50.00 or more.
