Carl Monday Investigation: Moonlight firefighters awaiting discipline

Carl Monday Investigation: Moonlight firefighters awaiting discipline

CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) - Dozens of Cleveland firefighters are still awaiting discipline, following a Carl Monday investigation in February. We've learned disciplinary hearings are almost complete and punishment could be coming soon.

The investigation involved Cleveland firefighters working second jobs at Aero Mag 2000, the de-icing company at Hopkins International Airport. Some didn't have permission from the fire department. Others worked more than the 20-hour part-time limit.

"I appreciate you bringing us this information, and I'm asking the Integrity Control Unit to continue to look at it," said former Chief Patrick Kelly.

The city launched its own probe and sent disciplinary letters to 35 firefighters.

Carl Monday has learned that 30 of the firefighters have had their disciplinary hearings; five others are pending.

That doesn't include the focus of Monday's investigation, Aero Mag operations director Michael Bey, and the company's regional boss, William Colberg. As was reported, both held full-time jobs with Aero Mag and the Cleveland Fire Department. Both men are still under investigation.

The extent of the discipline for the other 35 firefighters remains unknown. The city says it won't release that information until all the hearings are completed.
