CEDAR RAPIDS (KWWL) -

The Linn County Attorney's Office says the Cedar Rapids mayor did nothing wrong in approving three recent projects.

The report, issued Friday, comes after a complaint by Lisa Kuzela to the Iowa Ethics and Campaign Disclosure Board alleging Mayor Ron Corbett had a conflict of interest involving two transfers of property and the City Council's approval of a new casino in Linn County.

Corbett is also vice president of trucking company CRST International.

The Linn County Attorney says the claims of conflict of interest have no merit.
