HOW SHOULD A COUNCILLOR BEHAVE?

National legislation, such as the Municipal Structures Act, sets out how municipal councillors, ward committees, and administrative officials must behave, and the penalties for improper behaviour.

The Code of Conduct for municipal councillors sets out certain ethical and other standards to ensure the integrity of councillors and their accountability to your community. Use this Code of Conduct to demand accountability from your municipal councillors. You can do this by making a complaint and asking for enforcement of the Code.
