A month-long investigation into possible "code of conduct infractions" by Chestermere city council will see its results presented tonight.
Last summer, then-Minister of Municipal Affairs Ric McIver launched the investigation to look into "the management, administration and operations of the city," per a statement from McIver's press secretary Scott Johnston when the investigation was launched.
This provincial investigation was one of three investigations into the City of Chestermere, all of which were about financial dealings last summer.
Chestermere Mayor Jeff Colvin said last year several staff members were given sizeable severance packages after only working for several years. City policy stated any expense more than $75 000 must be signed off by council, but that was not done in these cases.
A separate investigation also focused on the dissolution of Chestermere Utilities inc., which was disbanded in 2021 after audits discovered millions of dollars unaccounted for or missing.
The announcement of the investigation's results will take place tonight at 6:00 p.m. at the Chestermere Recreation Centre.
