Over $100,000 in funds has been recovered and returned to the RM of La Broquerie following finance issues that led to the dismissal of chief administrative officer Rachel Fournier in Dec. 2015, according to a statement released by the municipality on Tuesday.
La Broquerie council said in the statement that $106,000 has been recovered through its municipal insurers and work to recover the remaining funds from Fournier (a total which was not disclosed) continues.
The council statement also noted that "in order to continue with any other proceedings," a forensic analysis report estimated to cost in the range of $30,000-$50,000 would be required. At this time, council indicated it was choosing instead to leave the matter in the hands of insurers to continue their recovery efforts.
Fournier had been employed as the municipality’s CAO for only a few months, but had worked as a financial officer with the municipality since 2009.
