Troy, MI- Former Troy City Manager Brian Kischnick has been charged in Federal Court with bribery, with the FBI accusing him of accepting over $20,000 in gifts from a contractor.  Kischnick was fired in March after being arrested for assaulting a female in Clawson.

A press release from current City Manager Mark Miller states:

“As a result of illegal and unethical activity while employed by the City of Troy, former City Manager Brian Kischnick has been charged by the United States Attorney, Case Number 2:18-cr-20469, violation of 18 U.S.C. Section 666 (a), Bribery Concerning Programs Receiving Federal Funds.

The leadership and employees of the City have fully cooperated with the investigation and are committed to moving forward in serving City residents with the integrity they deserve.

“Through his criminal and unethical behavior, Mr. Kischnick has victimized residents, taxpayers, City employees and City Council,” said City Manager Mark Miller.  “The City is moving forward with employees that meet the highest standards of ethical conduct and integrity.”

In order to ensure transparency, City Administration plans to hire a forensic auditor to review City finances.  Professional and ethical responsibility training and internal reporting processes are a priority of the City.

Additional information will be provided as it becomes available.  More detailed information is anticipated for Monday afternoon, July 9, 2018.”
