The RCMP have taken over the investigation into the Kleefeld Recreation Association. 2017 11 kleefeld

Back in September, Reeve Stan Toews said the KRA's 2017 audit uncovered issues which could have left municipal funds exposed to fraudulent activities. Hanover then took over all of the association's finances, including 2018, where Toews says they also found "disturbing documentation that did not line up."

At that time, council ordered a forensic audit and the association's secretary-treasurer was suspended from her duties.

Hanover says the RCMP have begun the investigation and the RM has no further comment at this time.
