GRAND CHUTE, Wis. (WBAY) – We are learning more about a state investigation into the Grand Chute City Council in which a member says his focus is entirely on Supervisor Ron Wolff.

He walked out at a meeting on Tuesday night.

Action 2 News was first to report the story in March.

We now know that at least four of the city’s five supervisors were questioned by officers from the Criminal Investigations Division after that agency completed three search warrants.

These warrants were sealed by an Outagamie County judge, preventing the public from finding out specific details.

Grand Chute supervisor Walt Nocito requested that the DCI investigation issue be put on the agenda and at the meeting he let us know the type of questions he was asked by the DCI officials. Enforcement Concerning Supervisor Wolff.

“The first topic was Supervisor Wolff’s residence, the concern,” Nocito said, adding “Apparently what I said didn’t satisfy them, I don’t know, and then they brought up the issue of Mr. Wolff telling people and staff that they are going to get fired I have no knowledge of that.

Nocito also revealed what Wolff told him took place in what he called a raid on his property.

“I can’t imagine in my craziest state with this type of trouble that you would show up with multiple agency vehicles, smash through a door, manhandle his wife, go through all the stuff like he’s a big money smuggler. drugs or something,” Nocito said.

Wolff said nothing during the discussion as other supervisors questioned the motive behind what law enforcement was looking for and acting on.

Supervisor Jeff Ings said: ‘I’m concerned about how this could happen. It’s really mind-boggling. We know someone is behind this, but we don’t know who, but it certainly has an impact on the business of the town.

We also tried to talk to Wolff after the meeting.

Instead, he left, refusing to say anything.

Nocito requested a resolution calling on the city to conduct its own investigation into the source of the DCI investigation, which the city attorney said would not be a legal possibility in this case.
