Peel Region council members are expressing a desire to see more public accountability and transparency around the use of taxpayer-funded spending allowances for travel and other expenses related to their duties.

As a special committee prepares to conduct a comprehensive review of the rules governing council expense accounts and reimbursement for job-related spending, several council members offered vocal support for the process during a recent meeting.
