COTTRELLVILLE TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) - The township’s top official was sent to jail. The treasurer quit. The clerk could face a recall election.

Local government isn’t dull in Cottrellville Township, 30 miles south of Port Huron.

The Port Huron Times Herald ( ) says treasurer Sandra Keais left office Thursday, citing “recent turmoil” in the township. Supervisor Kelly Fiscelli is returning to work Tuesday after a jail sentence for drunken driving.

Meanwhile, the St. Clair County Election Commission says critics can gather signatures for a recall election against Fiscelli and township clerk Lori Russelburg. A fellow member of the township board was recalled last fall.

Russelburg says the return of the supervisor this week will ease her workload. She’s been working extra days.
