Wasaga Beach councillors are getting a visit from the town's Integrity Commissioner at tonight's (Tuesday) meeting.

Principles Integrity will deliver its first annual report covering from February 1, 2018, when the company was hired by the town, to September 30, 2019.

The report states that during the past year and a half, the company has received 24 complaints, some "consisting of multiple allegations of transgression".

The Integrity Commissioner says some complaints did not warrant investigations. Specific complaints and actions are not detailed in this report.

But in June, Councillor Joe Belanger was found, by the Integrity Commissioner, to have violated the Code of Conduct for not declaring a conflict in two separate votes on separate matters.

In April, council voted in favour of an Integrity Commissioner recommendation to suspend 10 days pay to Councillor Joe Belanger for engaging in inappropriate conduct by attacking the motives and actions of the mayor and others.
