Whitchurch-Stouffville’s town council has slapped a number of tough sanctions on embattled Mayor Justin Altmann following two reports by the town’s integrity commissioner. In addition to losing up to six months of pay, Altmann will be removed from all committees, may only communicate with staff via email outside of council meetings, and will have limited access to municipal buildings, including his office. The measures were adopted in a 5-1 vote by council Tuesday after the integrity commissioner found Altmann refused to apologize for a strange wall discovered in his office washroom that contained pictures of councillors, private citizens and former staff; she also found that he disclosed confidential council information during a November radio interview.
