Exceptions to Rules

Legislation lists many situations that may arise while conducting municipal business where the need to declare a conflict of interest would not apply.

For example, a conflict of interest would not exist when a motion to pay the utility bills is presented to council where a member of council is employed by SaskPower.

Council members are also not considered to be in a position of conflict when setting the tax policy for the municipality, or when setting remuneration for members of council. 

A full list of the situations where the need to declare a conflict of interest does not apply are found in subsection 143(2) of The Municipalities Act, subsection 115(2) of The Cities Act, and subsection 161(2) of The Northern Municipalities Act, 2010.
