OAKLEY, Mich. (AP) - Trustees in the village of Oakley have voted to release the names of former police department members and reserve officers.

The Saginaw News reports (https://bit.ly/1oa5OX9 ) the 4-2 decision Tuesday came after one of its reporters appeared before the board to ask for a vote after a Freedom of Information Request was denied.

Clerk Cheryl Bolf, however, says the village doesn’t have a document listing the names.

Meanwhile, the board voted Tuesday to pass resolutions by Trustee Francis Koski that command all officers and reservists to return their badges and other police equipment. Koski sued to force the department to shut down.

Oakley has roughly 300 residents, but the department had 12 officers and 100 reserve officers who lived around the state and helped pay for the police budget.
