Former CAO Rachel Kunz is suing Town of Ponoka a month and a half after being let go.
The details of the claim are unknown at this time, except that the town was served with a statement of claim recently and it has been provided to the town’s lawyers.
It is believed the claim may be related to Kunz being fired for justifiable cause on Oct. 20 during a special meeting of the town council, where councillors voted to dismiss her because of the failure of the town administration to timely advise the council on the need for a borrowing bylaw to go ahead with North Bridge renovation project.
Mayor Rick Bonnett declined to comment on the statement of claim by Kunz, stating it is a legal matter. There are no details on if a statement of defense has been filed at the court.
Kunz was unavailable for comment.
