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.
