The Troy city council voted unanimously to fire its city manager after a closed-door session March 11.

Clawson police charged Brian Kischnick with domestic assault and battery. He’s accused of tackling a woman to the ground after a dinner party Friday night.

Kischnick has denied the charges and in a handwritten statement, he called the incident a “misunderstanding.”

Nearly 60 residents attended the meeting. Some of them said Kischnick should have been disciplined for past problems. A 2016 internal investigation found that he didn't report an accident involving a city car.

He was also accused of approving significant purchases that should have been voted on by the council.
