Manitoba municipal council broke rules
Manitoba's auditor general says a municipal council northeast of Winnipeg broke several laws and bylaws in recent years.
Carol Bellringer says the Rural Municipality of Lac Du Bonnet violated the province's Municipal Act by writing off property taxes owed by a tourist camp. Bellringer says council also had the province pay to fix a ditch that had been improperly built in the first place and was the responsibility of the builder.
The auditor also says a former reeve of the municipality was in a conflict of interest when he acted as both reeve and building inspector.
Bellringer is calling on the Manitoba government to monitor the municipality and ensure changes are made.
Deputy reeve Bob Bruneau says he hasn’t yet seen the report, but suggests some of the complaints came from a small group of citizens who wanted to “stir the pot.”
