Still no word on investigation into operations
CORNER BROOK — It’s been more than six months since the Corner Brook Downtown Business Association came to a halt and there is still no indication of the police getting to the bottom of why.
The organization decided to suspend its operations late last November after it asked the Royal Newfoundland Constabulary to investigate potential misappropriation of funds. The DBA’s funding was mainly comprised of a levy charged by the City of Corner Brook to businesses located within the downtown core. The city stopped applying the levy, at the request of the DBA, in light of the financial issues.
The volunteer board has said it has been co-operating with the city and police during the subsequent investigation, but has not been given any update on how that probe is proceeding.
The RNC, when asked by The Western Star for the latest on the investigation, said it will not be commenting while the matter is still being looked into.
