MIDVALE -- A special projects and fleet manager for Midvale is accused of failing disclose his interest in companies that were awarded city contracts for a street lighting project.
The Salt Lake Tribune reports that prosecutors added the companies Thursday to the criminal case against Bryce Westcott, who was arrested in November.
Westcott's next court date is Thursday on charges of fraud, theft and a pattern of unlawful activity.
The companies -- identified as DiVi Energy LLC, WT Group LLC, and Thompson Westcott LLC -- were paid to do consulting work, studies and installation for 300 new street lights.
Prosecutors say Westcott also secretly brokered the sale of a city backhoe to the affiliated companies and pocketed $12,900 after the backhoe was resold on KSL.com for $32,000.
Westcott's attorney, Ron Yengich, didn't immediately return a call Friday from The Associated Press.
