WARREN, Mich. (WXYZ) - A federal grand jury is digging for evidence of possible corruption in the City of Warren.
The subpoena demanded records dealing with waste hauling trucks—that includes any purchases, bids and receipts for parts.
The feds also want records of any communications with vendors involving mayoral appointee Gust Ghanam dating back to 2008.
Gust is the director of sanitation and deputy director of public service.
Mayor Jim Fouts says his administration is fully cooperating with the investigation. Mayor Fouts says he received the subpoena last month.
He tells us if there are any indictments, the person or persons will be fired immediately.
“I am proud of my record of honesty, transparency and forthrightness during my 31 years in city government, and I will never betray the public trust I have been given by Warren taxpayers,” said Fouts in a statement.“ My appointees also must share this sense of honesty.”
“If any mayoral appointee is indicted resulting from this subpoena, he or she will be terminated immediately. The appointee will not be suspended but will be terminated,” Fouts added.
