Commissioners authorize county attorney to investigate FedExForum garage contract

Monday the Shelby County Commission officially gave the okay for its attorney to investigate the FedExForum garage contract.

Led by Commissioner John Willingham, the board adopted a list of 20 questions they hope will lead to answers about what went wrong.

"I truly want to know where the money came from, who designed the office building that was built and when was the decision made for that building, " Willingham said.

"Who knew what when and when did they inform the next higher authority of what they knew and when?" Commissioner Julian Bolton asked.

County attorney Brian Kuhn had already begun looking into what's now known as Garage Gate in anticipation of this request.

He told commissioners his office is currently reviewing 140,000 pages of documents and should have a timeline of who knew what and when, with in the next two weeks.
