No criminal charges will be filed against former Sugar Grove Township supervisor Dan Nagel, who a township trustee asked police to investigate in October.
Acting Police Chief Ron Moser said the decision was made after reviewing results of the investigation with the Kane County State's Attorney's Office.
Nagel could not be reached for comment Wednesday.
Nagel resigned Oct. 31, citing personal reasons.
Trustee Scott Jesseman had questioned Nagel's practices, including submitting bills to the township board for approval after he had already paid them. Jesseman specifically questioned $1,800 spent on meals, why the township had paid for an iPhone for Nagel, and why it had bought a used refrigerator from Nagel. Jesseman said Nagel didn't provide supporting documents, such as receipts, for bills, and that he found $9,600 worth of payments to, or items for, Nagel, that were never brought to the board for approval. He brought this to the attention of the board, suggested Nagel resign, and asked for restitution.
Jesseman said Nagel also received $3,000 for auditing the books of the township's road and bridge district, but he shouldn't have because his supervisor salary already covered those duties. Jesseman said Nagel ended up giving $4,000 in checks to the road and bridge district and the township.
Jesseman said in a November interview, "I'm not trying to run for his position."
He is one of four men running April 9 to become township supervisor.
