LYONS, Colo. (AP) - A Colorado town administrator and clerk are back on the job after being placed on temporary leave during a federal investigation.

The Longmont Times-Call reports (http://bit.ly/2dnuVpJ ) that the Town Administrator Victoria Simonsen and Town Clerk Debra Anthony were placed on leave two weeks ago, when the FBI and the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development began investigating the town’s flood recovery contract.

Mayor Connie Sullivan said last week that the FBI and HUD found that the town did not misuse funds or personally benefit from the contract with Front Range Land Solutions, which is owned by a former Lyons employee. Sullivan says the Board of Trustees agreed Monday to reinstate Simonsen and Anthony during an hours-long executive session.

Neither federal agency was willing to comment on the case.
