The Ombudsman found that a quorum of Council for the Township of Adelaide Metcalfe illegally met behind closed doors with representatives from a wind energy corporation on January 25, 2012. The meeting was requested by the corporation to provide an overview of a proposed wind energy project to the Mayor and key staff, but when a quorum of council attended and made comments on the project, it became a meeting of council that is subject to the open meeting requirements. The subject matter did not qualify for closed meeting consideration.
