- 54A (1) The Council may adopt a policy requiring the Municipality to disclose to the public the amount of compensation the Municipality pays or provides to any person, in accordance with the policy.
(a) requiring any agency, board, commission or corporation to which the Council may appoint the majority of the members to disclose, and any such agency, board, commission or corporation shall disclose, to the Municipality, the amount of compensation it pays or provides to any person; and
(c) designate any agency, board, commission or corporation to which the Council may appoint the majority of the members, or any class of such agencies, boards, commissions or corporations, as subject to the policy;
(5) The disclosure of information pursuant to a policy adopted pursuant to this Section is deemed not to contravene any Act, regulation or agreement, whether the Act was enacted or the regulation or agreement was made before or after the coming into force of this Section and, for greater certainty, Part XX of the Municipal Government Act does not restrict disclosure pursuant to such a policy.
