INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) - The city of Indianapolis fired two employees indicted on federal charges this week, and it's hired an attorney to handle additional investigations into alleged bribery.
Reggie Walton, assistant administrator of the Indianapolis Department of Metropolitan Development and John Hawkins, senior project manager, were arrested on Tuesday for wire fraud and bribery.
On Friday, Indianapolis Mayor Greg Ballard announced that Walton and Hawkins had been fired for violating city ethics and ordinances.
The city also hired attorney Forrest Bowman, Jr.
"Mr. Bowman will help facilitate our communication and data requests with the United States Attorney's office and to perform a forensic review of city policies and procedures in an effort to ensure we have the best practices in place to protect the public trust," Ballard said in a news release.
