Dorset mayor Greg Howard has had two code of conduct complaints against him dropped.
The first code of conduct complaint was made in September last year by former councillor Lawrence Archer.
The complaint alleged Cr Howard had breached the councillor's Code of Conduct by causing offense or embarrassment, and through representation.
The alleged breach occurred through a letter to Labor leader Rebecca White which was published in its entirety at the June council meeting.
IN OTHER NEWS:
Parts of the complaint were dismissed last year, with the rest of the complaint being investigated further.
Upon receipt of information from Cr Howard and Mr Archer, the Code of Conduct Panel determined to dismiss the remainder of the complaint.
The second complaint was brought forward by Karl Willwrath.
It alleged Cr Howard had not made decisions solely on merit, had been influenced by personal or private interests and had not treated people with respect.
The breaches occurred when Cr Howard refused to let Councillor Edwina Powell ask a question on someone's behalf, and the disclosure of Mr Willwrath's name without his consent.
From the evidence put before the panel, through hearings and in writing, the complaint was dismissed.
Both the reports were expected to be tabled at the council's first meeting of 2020 on Monday evening.
