Another former Wayne County official indicted
DETROIT (AP) — A former high-ranking Wayne County official has been indicted on corruption charges in an investigation of kickbacks tied to a health program.
Michael Grundy is accused of enriching himself by having a contractor inflate invoices and pass him the cash. Grundy was an assistant county executive and director of HealthChoice until he was fired last fall.
He's charged with conspiracy, fraud and extortion. His lawyer had no immediate comment Wednesday.
Grundy was placed on leave in October and then fired in November by Wayne County Executive Robert Ficano.
Federal authorities began investigating county government after news broke that a senior official was getting a $200,000 severance to become airport chief. That deal eventually was dropped.
