A review of St. Albert, Alta. city counsellor Cathy Heron’s expenses by the city found “no malfeasance” with her claims.

A full review was conducted of Heron’s expense claims and in a release, the city stated “there are no funds now payable by or to the City with respect to those claims.”

The City of St. Alberta launched an investigation after the Sept. 11 city council meeting in which a retired Revenue Canada auditor presented information on three incidents that he believed added up to $3,331.61 in fraudulent expense claims.

One incident allegedly involved an Alberta Capital Region Waste Water Commission conference in New Orleans where the former auditor alleged Heron submitted a fraudulent claim of over $2,800.
