COTTRELLVILLE TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) - A judge has ruled that a former township supervisor will be held liable for a 2013 violation of Michigan’s Open Meetings Act.

The Times Herald of Port Huron (https://bwne.ws/22wzz3Y ) reported Tuesday that the opinion by Circuit Judge Michael West says that former Cottrellville Township supervisor Kelly Fiscelli will be held liable for cutting three people’s comment periods short. Each of the three was awarded $250 by West, who said their costs and attorney fees will be paid by Fiscelli.

Fiscelli’s attorney, Robert Seibert, said he hadn’t talked with her about the possibility of appealing. Seibert said whether the township or his client would be the one to pay for the costs and fees wasn’t immediately clear.
