The Ombudsman found that closed meetings held by the Municipality of Killarney's Ad-Hoc Committee between June and August 2013 contravened the municipality's procedure by-law because, under the by-baw, all committee meetings must be open to the public unless the subject matter falls within one of the open meeting exceptions of the Municipal Act, 2001.  However, the Ombudsman did not find any violation of the Act in regard to Council's October 18 and October 21 special closed meetings to discuss a wharf lease.
