Special meeting in Pelham to address financial situation

Members of the community in Pelham looking for answers on the town's financial state should get them tomorrow.

Pelham councillors unanimously approved a motion asking KPMG to include all financial findings and conclusions discussed during a September 5th meeting as part of a forensic audit of town finances to be presented at a special meeting of Council tomorrow night.   

It all stems from allegations made by former Councillor Marvin Junkin who disclosed confidential information from that September meeting and implied the town has $17 million in unreported debt. 

The meeting, expected to be well attended by members of the public, will take place at the E.L. Crossley Secondary School cafeteria beginning at 6:30 p.m. 

The results from a KPMG audit into transactions related to a 3.3 acre parkland overdedication as well as a development charge credit will also be presented.  

The meeting will also be live streamed, you can find the link to watch by clicking here.
