MOUNT CLEMENS, Mich. — A public works official in suburban Detroit says her office has produced records for federal investigators who apparently are looking at her predecessor’s many years in office.

Candice Miller says employees in her Macomb County agency have been called to testify before a grand jury. She tells The Macomb Daily ( ) that investigators have been looking at unusual invoices and email.

Miller says: “Whatever they want, we’re giving it to them.”

She defeated Public Works Commissioner Anthony Marrocco in November. Marrocco, who was in office for 24 years, hasn’t made any public comments.

The U.S. Attorney’s Office won’t comment on the public works probe, but it has acknowledged a corruption investigation in Macomb County. Five township officials have been charged so far.
