TEXARKANA — A former Texarkana city manager has been cleared of allegations that he violated state ethics law.

Harold Boldt left his job as city manager last month as part of an agreement with the city's Board of Directors. The Arkansas Ethics Commission began an investigation after a Texarkana resident filed a complaint regarding Boldt's involvement in a planned convention center, hotel and water park.

The complaint claimed that Boldt violated an ethics statute in connection with money that the city pledged to the developer who's building the new center. The Texarkana Gazette reports that the complaint against Boldt was dismissed on a unanimous vote from the ethics commission.

The commission found that Boldt had no "personal or financial relationship" with the developer.
