Grand Ledge Public Works Superintendent resigns in midst of lawsuit against city


The City of Grand Ledge is currently in the midst of a lawsuit filed last Nov. by 59-year-old Jeff Mitchner. 

Mitchner is a former Public Works employee who claims he was retaliated against after reporting racial comments made by his supervisor Nick Diorio back in June.

In the lawsuit, he said the Public Works Superintendent, Victor Rost, tried to get him to drop the claim by intimidating him and saying if something happens to Diorio’s job, it was on Mitchner. 

Superintendent Rose who was one of the three people named in the suit officially resigned at Monday night’s city council meeting. 
We have reached out to the City of Grand Ledge for more information on why Rose stepped down last night, but so far they have not made any comments. 

We aren’t sure if his resignation is directly related to the lawsuit or not, but we’ll continue to follow this story and pass along any updates when they happen.
