The Ombudsman found that two informal gatherings of newly-elected councillors for the Town of Kearney did not violate the Municipal Act, as the councillors had not yet been sworn in and there was therefore no quorum of the current council present. However, these gatherings involved discussions of future council business and were therefore inconsistent with the principles of transparency and openness underlying the open meeting requirements.
