Good. I was astounded that they picked him in the first place. Now Chris Rayes and Liz Koto also need to go for allowing a rogue Council person with no authority to take pictures of an inside of a residence what so ever and post a Notice of Demolition on the door for all the world to see when he had no authority at all to do this!

If Ben would have held CDI accountable for their actions he may not be in this situation.

you idiots seem to forget that employees don't allow city council to do anything. They have bosses and when they are told to do something, they must do it. Put the blame where it needs to be and that's solely on Vitale.

What deal was cut? Resign or get fired. With only a 2 day notice.

Makes me go hmmmm. Probably a little too much heat in the kitchen. Didn't someone put the FBI on to all the shenanigans in city hall and in the tall building in Mt. Clemens?

A few years back it was rumored that the FBI was working downriver, busted some one there, went to detroit and busted kwame and Co and now in Macomb county. Its a very real possibility.

What a buch of freaking. Morons. So let me get this straight. Feds go into city hall and everybody sees this but low and behold, not a news outlet in town has a story on it. Next there will be a grassy noll and a maguc bullet.

Nice job stupid.

Also, his contract had EXPIRED. So, why pay someone severance if their contract was done with? Is this SCS or Wayne County and Turkia Mullin? Sure, the $ amount is not as high, but it's the same principle.

Hmm, wonder if it is a repeat of what happened in Racine....

Here's hoping he moves soon and the new owners of his house get rid of the weeds, cut the grass, and keep any dogs from running around the neighborhood. Good riddance.

I disagree with you totally, the one person who has been calling the shots in this city and takes his orders from Uncle Ted in Mt. Clemens is Mike Smith and if the truth was known this is the moment that Smith has been waiting for to make his move as City Manager and he also is not qualified for that position.

C'mon you people are not that dumb are you. He didn't receive severance pay he received "Hush money" there is a difference, if the feds come in SCS as well as Mt. Clemens they will all fall like dominos, because no one knows enough to keep their mouth shut and do their job. Go FEDS clean sweep Mt. Clemens and SCS, Go Big Brother!

Not a place for an honest man. Honesty is the best policy. He will be just fine in another city while the circle jerk here will continue on.

What other city besides SCS would be stupid enough to hire him after the sexual harassment complaints in Racine? He resigned abruptly there too in a closed session meeting.

And before Racine, a harassment claim against him when he was village manager in Wrightstown, WI.
