Six Summit Township firefighters fire last fall are back on the payroll... They were accused of having sex on the job.
The Summit Township Board gave the okay during a meeting Wednesday morning.
Returning to work are Captain Doug Evert, firefighters Matt Shaw, Scott Stoker, Todd Moore, Jim Warner, and Larry Witkowski. Those men along with Captain Steve Hammond were accused of sleeping with numerous women at the firehouses on Ferguson road and Spring Arbor.
The township supervisor says the board made the decision to settle the issue and cut their losses. This comes after some witnesses who gave sworn statements failed to show up at the arbitration hearings. Hammond is still in the arbitration process.
