CLAY TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) - The owner of the Harsens Island ferry is in a dispute with the state agency that regulates its operations.

The Times Herald of Port Huron reports (https://bwne.ws/1AJlVi0 ) the Michigan Public Service Commission has ordered Champion’s Auto Ferry to explain why it failed to provide documentation the commission says the company is required to submit.

In a November filing, the commission staff called Champion’s “serially noncompliant.”

The staff also asked the commission to fine Champion’s for failing to provide financial information, reverse its 2013 approval of a $1 rate increase and order Champion’s to refund ticket money collected after the $1 rate increase.

Dave Bryson, president of Champion’s Auto Ferry, says the commission doesn’t have the right to the information it’s requesting.

Harsens Island is in St. Clair County’s Clay Township.
