Tax col­lec­tor dis­missed

Standard-Freeholder (Cornwall) - - NEWS -

ALEXAN­DRIA — The Town­ship of North Glen­garry has parted ways with its tax col­lec­tor and is al­leg­ing she was re­spon­si­ble for dis­crepen­cies in tax bills.

The town­ship is­sued a state­ment Fri­day in­di­cat­ing San­dra Cameron was re­leased from em­ploy­ment on Nov. 9 and that the OPP had been con­tacted to in­ves­ti­gate.

The state­ment spelled out how the town­ship be­came aware of dis­crepen­cies in how pay­ments, penal­ties and in­ter­est were be­ing replied and re­ported on prop­erty tax bills. It called in Deloitte LLP to con­duct a foren­sic in­ves­ti­ga­tion, which con­tin­ues. An in­terim re­port con­firmed trans­ac­tions of a na­ture and scale that vi­o­lated mu­nic­i­pal pol­icy and prac­tice.

As of yet, no crim­i­nal charges have been filed against Cameron by the OPP or any other law en­force­ment agency and the ac­tions North Glen­garry has al­leged she com­mit­ted have not been proven in court.
