Former Troy City Manager Pleas Guilty to Bribery Charge

Former Troy City Manager Pleas Guilty to Bribery Charge

(City of Troy, Aug. 22, 2018)

Troy, MI The City of Troy was notified that former City Manager Brian Kischnick has pleaded guilty to federal bribery charges today. Current City leadership continues to move forward with plans for a forensic audit and other measures in support of professional and ethical employee behavior.


“Mr. Kischnick’s behavior represents a very serious breach of public trust and abuse of power,” said Troy City Manager Mark Miller. “We will continue to move forward with employees that meet the highest standards of integrity, implement safeguards to ensure ethical behavior and serve our residents with the professionalism they deserve.”

City Administration is currently in the process of procuring a forensic auditor to review City finances. Additional measures undertaken include development of employee ethical responsibility training. Recently, the City of Troy completed a comprehensive audit of security systems and access to critical accounts to ensure security protocols are in place. As a result, no evidence of any unknown data breeches was discovered.

Kischnick was terminated by the Troy City Council in March after he was arrested for domestic violence. Kischnick was charged with a federal bribery charge in connection to allegedly accepting cash and items from a contractor. Sentencing is scheduled for December 13, 2018 at 10 a.m.

The leadership and employees of the City have fully cooperated with the FBI investigation of Mr. Kischnick.
