Assessment Of Berrien Springs Oronoko Township PD Not Yet Done

The fate of Berrien Springs Oronoko Township Police Chief Milt Agay remains up in the air. The Oronoko Township Board has hired attorney Peter Letzmann from the Grand Rapids area to conduct an assessment of the department as a whole, and he told the board Tuesday night that the report they were expecting is not yet done.


Letzmann believes he will be ready by the next township board meeting in April.


Agay's lawyer has told WSJM News that the department is being investigated because the chief called out what he thinks is illegal activity by the township. Exactly what activity that is hasn't been disclosed. Agay's attorney adds the chief has been told by Letzmann that he has the option to resign under the township's terms or he will be fired. If his job is terminated, the chief is considering a lawsuit. Agay is on voluntary paid leave, and has been off the job under those circumstances since mid-February.
