We received complaints that council for Norfolk County discussed matters that did not fall within the exceptions in the Municipal Act, 2001 during closed meetings on January 19 and February 16, 2016. 

The Ombudsman found that the discussion on January 19 fit within the exceptions for solicitor-client privilege, and litigation or potential litigation. The Ombudsman found that the February 16 discussion fit within the exception for personal matters about identifiable individuals.
