WEST BLOOMFIELD (WXYZ) - Two days after a conservative action group calls for a state investigation, Farmington Public Schools is fighting back.
On Tuesday, the Thomas More Law Center submitted a letter to the attorney general’s office asking for a grand jury investigation. The group claims the district participated in corruption and bribery when it sold the closed Eagle Elementary school, located on 14 Mile at Middlebelt, to the Islamic Cultural Association.
The ICA bought the property from the district for $1.1-million despite public outcry.
Today, Susan Zurvalec, the district’s superintendent, issued a statement to the community saying in part, “The Thomas More Law Center’s allegations are simply untrue. The truth is that the ICA was the only entity to make a formal purchase offer for this property.”
