Case Closed

Oakland County Sheriff's office and Michigan State Police investigators have determined City of the Village of Clarkston Manager Carol Eberhardt did nothing wrong criminally in regards to police reports filed by a local resident over Freedom of Information Act requests and deletion of city records.

A special investigator with the county told local Cory Johnston, who filed the complaint that he may have a civil case, but the matter is not criminal. Johnston filed the complaints in July after several months of ongoing issues with the manager.

An attorney he hired, after Eberhardt made a variety of claims about him, said he should sue the city. Johnston said although he thinks he would prevail in a civil case, he does not have the time or money to fight the city. He also said he has already spent $2,500 on the issue.

A few weeks ago, Johnston said he is considering moving out of Clarkston because he feels officials get away with anything they want with no repercussions. He also claims city officials improperly notify the public about meetings, records are often unavailable and unbudgeted expenses are approved regularly.
