Thursday's meeting of the Jay Township Board of Supervisors saw more infighting between board members as allegations of secret deliberations continue to surface.
The split between members of the board was highlighted at Jay Township's re-organization meeting held this past January, during which Supervisor Murray K. Lilley's position as the township's equipment/road manager was terminated, effectively ending his tenure as an employee of the township.
The issue resurfaced at Thursday's meeting when Lilley accused fellow Supervisor Jeremy Rippey of attempting to strip him of the insurance benefits he is entitled to as a supervisor.
