CEDAR RAPIDS (KWWL) -- A newly elected member of the Cedar Rapids city council has been warned that his private contract with the city's flood recovery effort could be a conflict of interest.

Councilman-elect Chuck Swore is set to take office on January 2nd. He has requested a review from the city's Board of Ethics.

Before he was elected, Swore created a one-man case management firm that works with the Cedar Rapids Area Chamber of Commerce's flood recovery effort.

The council has chosen the Chamber to distribute disaster recovery funds.
