South Lyon City Counci member under fire for possible conflict of interest in window deal

SOUTH LYON, Mich. (WXYZ) -  A South Lyon city council member is under fire and under investigation for voting to approve a contract with a vendor - the company he works for.

This could be an ethics violation and possibly a misdemeanor crime.

It is all over new windows installed at the police department and another city building.

This turned ugly at the city council meeting.

Glenn Kivell works for Pullum Windows, a local company that was the low bidder for the $42,000 of windows.

But apology not accepted.

The Monday night meeting posted on YouTube went downhill from there, fast.

After more than 45 minutes, the mayor stepped in.

An investigation is underway. This could be an ethics violation, or a misdemeanor, that could include a fine, jail time and forfeiture of position.

Councilmember Kivel says he made no money on this deal.
