The Val­ley Re­gion Solid WasteRe­source Man­age­ment Author­ity says an RCMP in­ves­ti­ga­tion into a ‘cor­re­spon­dence’ it sent to the County of An­napo­lis has con­cluded.

The author­ity is­sued a re­lease Dec. 21 stat­ing RCMP had been con­duct­ing an in­ves­ti­ga­tion in re­la­tion to a com­plaint re­ceived July 31 at the An­napo­lis district of­fice in Bridgetown.

The re­lease says the com­plaint al­legedly re­ferred to “cor­re­spon­dence re­ceived by An­napo­lis County from Val­ley Waste-Re­source Man­age­ment.”

Val­ley Waste com­mu­ni­ca­tions man­ager An­drew Gar­rett says Val­ley Waste as­sumes the cor­re­spon­dence from July 31 is a let­ter the author­ity sent the county “in­form­ing them that col­lec­tion would be seized, I think it was Aug. 8, if they hadn’t paid their bills,” he says.

Gar­rett says this let­ter was sent by the author­ity to the county July 31.

The re­lease says RCMP have not laid charges in re­la­tion to the in­ves­ti­ga­tion. It also says, “Val­ley Waste was never ad­vised as to the na­ture of the com­plaint and are very pleased this mat­ter has con­cluded.”

Gar­rett says the waste author­ity found out “through me­dia” that the county had lodged a com­plaint with the RCMP, but were never ad­vised on what it was re­gard­ing un­til con­tact­ing RCMP.

“Our gen­eral man­ager con­tacted the Bridgetown [RCMP] de­tach­ment and they con­firmed they re­ceived a com­plaint and had a file open, but they couldn’t ex­plain what it was about,” he says.

“And it was just yes­ter­day that we got a let­ter from the district com­man­der in­form­ing us that there was an in­ves­ti­ga­tion, and that it’s now closed with­out any charges.”

RCMP pub­lic in­for­ma­tion of­fi­cer Corp. Dal Hutchin­son could not com­ment on the mat­ter, and con­firmed RCMP in­ves­tiga­tive of­fi­cers are not avail­able to com­ment or con­firm these de­tails at this time.
