MODL: Councillors Actions To Be Probed

A municipal councillor will be investigated under the Municipal Conflict of Interest Act. A motion was made Tuesday night at a meeting held by the Municipality of Lunenburg. Councillor Don Zwicker made the motion following Frank Fawson's request to to remove streetlights in Dayspring, and recent comments questioning the openness and transparency of council. Fawson could lose his seat if found to be in conflict of interest. Zwicker says council has been under extreme pressure over the last few months because of the actions.

Zwicker also requested legal opinion to determine if Fawson and Councillor Terry Dorey were in breach of the municipal code of conduct suggesting the municipality isn't open or transparent without evidence. No action could be taken if Dorey or Fawson breached code of conduct.
