In response to social media posts involving a city employee

Sunday, April 4, 2021

Leduc City Manager Derek Prohar would like to share the following:

“Late evening, April 3, the City of Leduc Administration was made aware of an alleged serious incident documented on social media that may have involved a City of Leduc staff member. Following an early review, the employee has been suspended pending an internal investigation.  Further, the matter has been referred to local law enforcement authorities and we are co-operating fully with their concurrent investigation. I want to advise all citizens, including our dedicated staff, that our efforts thus far have been with this community in mind. The City of Leduc takes matters like this seriously, as the safety and security of our community is paramount.”
