The D.C. Council is preparing to share the findings of its investigation into Mayor Vincent Gray's hiring practices.

Councilmember Mary Cheh announced Tuesday that a preliminary report on allegations of improper hiring will be released on Aug. 24.

A Council committee is looking into allegations of nepotism, cronyism and inflated salaries in the early weeks of the Gray administration.

Former mayoral candidate Sulaimon Brown has said that Gray's campaign chairwoman and other aides gave him cash and promised him a job in exchange for bad-mouthing then-Mayor Adrian Fenty on the campaign trail.

Cheh said Brown has not cooperated with a subpoena that seeks phone records and other materials from him. A hearing on the matter is scheduled for Sept. 15, after which the committee may amend its report.
