NAPERVILLE, Ill. (AP) - The Naperville Township highway commissioner is suing the township board to stop it from stripping $540,000 from his budget.

Stan Wojtasiak contends the board’s decision to slash his funding was an illegal act of retaliation for his rejection of an agreement under which the city of Naperville would have taken over maintenance of some township roadway.

Wojtasiak disputed the amount of money the city claimed would have been saved under the agreement.

The commissioner says he’ll be forced to lay off several employees if the budget cut takes effect.

The suit filed in DuPage County Circuit Court names Naperville Township Supervisor Rachel Ossyra and two trustees as defendants.

Ossyra told The Naperville Sun (https://trib.in/1swkiUe ) they would review the claims before providing a public response.
