The Niles Charter Township Board passed a resolution Monday to have Supervisor Jim Kidwell ask trustee Michael Bailey, who was absent from the meeting, to resign from his position on the board.

Bailey, who pleaded guilty to indecent exposure two months ago, has already been removed from the parks board.

The motion came after four township residents urged council members to express their opinion on Bailey’s actions.

“We have an ethical issue here and it should be dealt with,” trustee Richard Cooper said.
Treasurer Jim Ringler made the motion and it passed unanimously.

Bailey made it very clear at a previous meeting that he has no intentions of resigning.

“I’m not going to resign,” he said at an April meeting. “I was charged with a misdemeanor. I am working with the courts and doing what I am supposed to do.”
