THIS IS A CLOSED EVENT

Because the work of the commission is quasi-judicial, it is important that commissioners have a working knowledge of law and procedures. When their decisions are questioned, the focus of the reviewing body will be on whether the commission was fair and followed their procedures in the decision-making process. Through a number of case studies, the workshop covers the following law and procedures-related topics:

  • Legal basis of authority
  • Ex parte communication
  • Conflicts of interest
  • Demolition by neglect
  • Economic hardship cases
