Hiring an integrity commissioner is going to cost Timmins $5,000 over a four-year term, plus $300 an hour per investigation. This information was brought to light last night, as a follow-up to council adopting its Code of Conduct.

City Clerk Steph Palmateer says the commissioner will be investigating any complaints or issues raised under that Code of Conduct.

The city is recommending Amberley Gavel Ltd. for the position, something Councillor Noella Rinaldo says is a good choice. She says the company is very well known and well respected. She notes they are familiar with Timmins city council, providing training and moderating conferences in the past.

No decisions were made last night, but this will come to a vote at an upcoming meeting.
