An investigation will soon begin into workplace harassment allegations made against a Bancroft councillor.

Council voted in favour of hiring an integrity commissioner to investigate the allegations earlier today.

Deputy Clerk Lianne Sauter says Councillor Bill Kilpatrick is accused of harassment, but would not confirm any details. Sauter says a public report will be released once the investigation is completed.

Moose FM reached out to Kilpatrick, who was unavailable for comment.
