Former Ponoka CAO Rachel Kunz

Former Ponoka CAO Rachel Kunz was awarded $90,000 in her settlement against the town.

While the details of the Oct. 5 settlement were subject to a non-disclosure agreement, the town’s October cheque register shows cheques were made out to Kunz and her law firm.

Ponoka News was able to confirm from a confidential source that a total of three cheques were written and that the matter has been settled.

The first cheque was for $25,000 to Rachel Kunz, the second was for $33,000 to MLT Aikins LLP in Trust (Kunz’s law firm) and the third cheque was made out on Oct. 26th to CIBC.

CAO Albert Flootman says the cheque to CIBC was part of the direction of the settlement. He did not comment further due to the non-disclosure agreement.
