From CBC Nova Scotia:
The Alberta Department of Municipal Affairs says it's begun a preliminary review into concerns raised by the council of Westlock County.
The council of the small farming community north of Edmonton asked the province to conduct a review of its operations, including the conduct of its former chief administrative officer, who is now Charlottetown's CAO.
The county's former chief financial officer alleges that Peter Kelly, while serving as CAO, authorized development on county property for a lessee without receiving the required spending authorization from council. That lessee was to be the Horizon North project.
As a result, the former CFO maintained the community is out approximately $194,000 because the development costs exceed the value of the property.
...When contacted by CBC News this week, a spokesperson for the City of Charlottetown sent an email statement.
"At this point in time, the City of Charlottetown is awaiting the conclusion of the request by Westlock County to the Province of Alberta to conduct a review. If the review indicates any issues with Mr. Kelly, council will deal with the situation at that time."
