For an undisclosed reason, LaTonya Rufus was placed on paid administrative leave in January as she was also under a personnel investigation. Now, the Albion City Council has voted unanimously to move her leave from paid to unpaid.
Last week, the Battle Creek City Commission approved an ordinance which prohibits the use of a cell phone for texting, talking, or anything else while behind the wheel. Gov. Whitmer indicated support for something similar on the state level.
