The Townships of Brock, Scugog, and Uxbridge are requesting applications from interested members of the public to serve on the Compliance Audit Committee for the 2022 Municipal Election.
This committee, consisting of three (3) members, will serve all three (3) municipalities for the term of November 15, 2022, to November 14, 2026.
Ideally, membership on the Compliance Audit Committee shall be comprised of one (1) member of the public from each municipality to serve all three (3) municipalities.
The purpose of the Committee is to review applications which may be referred by the Clerk or submitted by qualified electors who believe, on reasonable grounds, that a municipal election candidate or registered Third Party Advertiser has contravened the provisions of the Municipal Elections Act, 1996, as amended, related to campaign finances. The powers of the Committee will be to:
- Review applications received and decide whether the application should be granted or rejected;
- If the application is granted, to appoint an auditor to conduct a compliance audit; and,
- Upon receipt of the report indicating a contravention, the Committee may commence legal proceedings against the candidate or Registered Third Party Advertiser; or,
- Upon receipt of the report indicating no contravention, the Committee may make a finding as to whether there were reasonable grounds for the application and determine whether to recover the costs of conducting the compliance audit.
Committee members must have the ability to understand and apply the election campaign finance provisions of the Municipal Act and must be considered impartial with respect to their ability to fulfill their responsibilities. Preference shall be given to those Committee members with experience in accounting, law, and law enforcement.
The Municipal Elections Act, 1996, as amended, prohibits members of Council, a local board, staff of the respective municipalities, candidates, and Registered Third Party Advertisers from serving on this Committee.
Members of the Committee shall be provided a retainer and remunerated for their attendance at meetings together with mileage.
Interested persons are invited to forward a written expression of interest and resume outlining their experience and qualifications to serve on this Committee to the Clerk of one of the (3) municipalities.
