Ponoka’s former CAO claim against town settled out of court

The details of the settlement aren’t released due to a non-disclosure agreement

Ponoka’s former CAO Rachel Kunz’s claim against the Town of Ponoka was settled out of court almost three years after it started.

The former CAO’s claim was initially submitted to the Town of Ponoka on Nov. 20, 2015 — one month after she was fired. At the time of release (Oct. 20, 2015), council claimed “justifiable cause” stating several alleged concerns with her function as the CAO.

Kunz had served as the town’s CAO for about one year.

The details of the settlement are not available to the public as both parties signed a non-disclosure agreement. The claim was settled Oct. 5, just two and a half weeks before it was set to go to trial.

The Town of Ponoka would not comment on the file except to state that the court action was withdrawn and as it is a personnel issue no other comments would be provided due to Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act.

Mayor Rick Bonnett declined to comment because of the non-disclosure agreement.

Kunz was reached for comment but did not immediately respond.
