DAYTON, Ind. (WLFI) - Dayton Clerk-Treasurer Michelle Frewerd has filed a lawsuit against the Dayton Town Council.
According to court documents, the Dayton Town Council intentionally failed to give funding to the Clerk's Office for the payment of attorney salaries.
During a regular Town Council meeting in February, Frewerd is said to have reported that she retained legal counsel.
During the meeting, she requested $12,000 for attorney fees for the year.
The council denied the request, granting Frewerd only $600 for legal council.
A second request was made for the remaining funds in May, but was also denied by the Council.
The lawsuit requests the remaining funds to be paid during the Council's next regularly scheduled meeting.
