Four City of Chestermere’s municipal councillors and all three chief administrative officers (CAOs) were relieved of their duties by the province on Monday.

Minister of Municipal Affairs Ric McIver issued a ministerial order dismissing the councillors and CAOs after the city failed to comply with the supervision of the official administrator and some of the minister’s directives from earlier in the year.

Chestermere Mayor Jeff Colvin, coun. Mel Foat, coun. Blaine Funk, and coun. Stephen Hanley were all dismissed.

“For many months, Alberta’s government has been carefully following our legislative process in our response to concerns raised by citizens starting in January 2022, about the conduct of Chestermere City Council,” said McIver.
