The town of Taber announced, on Tuesday, the immediate termination of a key administrative official (the Central Auditing Organization).
The decision to split from Cory Armphelt, who has held the position since January 2017, was made during a city council meeting on Monday.
“This decision has not been taken seriously, but the Board will now begin the process of finding a new legal investigator,” Major Andrew Prokop said in a press release on Tuesday.
“I have no doubt that the Taber Town staff are a model group and will continue to do their best to serve the people of Taber in the meantime.
“We thank the staff and the public for their patience and understanding during this time.”

Prokop told Global News on Tuesday that he cannot go into more detail about the city’s decision for privacy reasons.
Taber City Council appointed Gary Shearer, the city’s director of engineering and public works, as well as John Erwa, the city’s finance director, as temporary administrative directors.
On Tuesday, the town said it would provide information on the recruitment process for a new Central Investigator’s office when the council finalizes the details.
