Ombudsman addresses complaints

  • Print

The Manitoba Ombudsman has posted five new reports, including one outlining its decision to partly side with Otterburne resident Marie Lefevre in her complaint against the RM of De Salaberry.

Lefevre alleged a De Salaberry council member approved a $5,000 road-repair expenditure without proper authority and that she was treated unfairly when she questioned the expense, The Carillon newspaper in Steinbach reported earlier this year.

"While the ombudsman found that the road repair work was authorized by council as part of the municipality’s financial plan, the ombudsman agreed that the complainant was treated inappropriately by an elected official of the municipality," the Ombudsman said in a statement.

This report is now posted here, along with four other new reports about complaints against the City of Winnipeg, the RM of Alexander and the RM of St. Andrews.
