Complaint Dismissed Against Windsor Mayor Dilkens


A complaint filed against Windsor Mayor Drew Dilkens has been rejected.

Dee Sweet, a Windsor resident, filed the complaint in early July alleging the mayor was misleading during a news conference regarding the proposed mega hospital project.

Sweet took issue with the mayor's comments about the proposed project on County Rd. 42 and the 9th Concession when he said the Business Improvement Associations had contravened the Ontario Municipal Act, by supporting the appeal before the Local Planning Appeal Tribunal.

She also took issue with the mayor deferring the rezoining matter at a council meeting in May.

In both complaints, Integrity Commissioner Bruce Elman has rejected both complaints as the mayor was acting in his official capacity and not seeking personal gain.

For his part, Mayor Drew Dilkens says he is pleased the integrity commissioner has decided to dismiss both allegations.

It costs the city $300 per hour for the integrity commissioner to investigate complaints.
