Waterville Township police Chief Kathleen Hartle was suspended from duty Wednesday night with pay until an allegation that she had an open container of alcohol in her patrol car late last month can be investigated.
The township trustees took their action after an hour-long closed session at their regular meeting. The suspension will last at least until the trustees' next regular meeting, which is scheduled for Sept. 23.
