The North Slope Borough Assembly has voted to investigate allegations of ethics violations made against Mayor Charlotte Brower.
The Assembly’s unanimous vote on Monday was made at Brower’s request and comes after a disclosure by Brower that borough staff had procured goods from members of her family.
Brower wrote in a July 7 memo to Assembly members that the borough had allowed no-bid purchases from her family without her knowledge. Details of the purchases the borough paid for were not immediately known.
Brower was not available for comment Tuesday. In a written statement released to the media, Brower said she thought an investigation into the allegations would “promote transparency and accountability within the borough.”
