Destin City Councilwoman Prebble Ramswell is being investigated for a possible misappropriation of city funds.

The investigation, requested by City Manager Greg Kisela, was confirmed by Bill Bishop, the chief assistant state attorney in Okaloosa County.

“An investigation has been asked for and we are beginning that investigation,” Bishop said late Wednesday afternoon.

Ramswell said Kisela had handed her an envelope following Tuesday’s city council meeting containing a letter “saying he noticed irregularities in the (city) credit card and that he’s going to be referring it to the state attorney.”

The letter, dated Oct. 20, also states that Kisela was reporting the matter under the advice of counsel.

“I am compelled to submit the information and documents relevant to this subject,” the letter said.
