Ethics Commission dismisses case against Pawt. mayor

The Rhode Island Ethics Commission has dismissed a complaint filed against Pawtucket's mayor over the city's hiring of one of his tenants in 2011.

The commission voted 6-0 on Tuesday to dismiss without prejudice the complaint against Mayor Donald Grebien.

An ethics investigator who looked into the 2011 hiring of Grebien's tenant for a city sanitation job said in a 20-page report there was no evidence of wrongdoing.

Grebien declined comment after the hearing. He has previously said the ethics complaint filed by his former director of administration was motivated by a personal grudge.
