Here are the Sept. 12, 2019 UBID COW meeting Agenda missing Agenda items: 3. FOIPPA officer, 4. Approval of Fire Chief and Deputy Fire Chief contracts, 5. Approval of Capital Expenditure for Fire Department… 6. RBC Loan Discussion, 7. Review policy 1- B – 01 (Code of Conduct).
None of these items are “In Camera” and FOIPPA Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act [RSBC 1996] CHAPTER 165 specifically states; “The head of a public body must not refuse to disclose (a) any factual material, ..AND, (4.) A disclosure of personal information is not an unreasonable invasion of a third party’s personal privacy if (e) the information is about the third party’s position, functions or remuneration as an officer, employee or member of a public body”.. http://www.bclaws.ca/EPLibraries/bclaws_new/document/ID/freeside/96165_00 (Go to Division 2 – Exceptions)
It is evident the Board and staff need training in FOIPPA, sooner than later. The August 30, 2019 letter from the Ministry made clear that UBID has failed in its communication with the landowners and this recent Agenda is, unfortunately, a continuation of UBID following improper procedure.
