SUGAR GROVE TOWNSHIP – An investigation into the former Sugar Grove Township supervisor over allegations that he mishandled township funds has closed, and authorities do not plan to file any charges.

Sugar Grove Police Chief Ron Moser said the investigation, which was reviewed by the Kane County State’s Attorney’s Office, concluded last week.

Township Trustee Scott Jesseman filed a complaint in late October about former Township Supervisor Dan Nagel, who resigned from his post in late October.

Jesseman has said he grew suspicious of Nagel’s money handling and filed a Freedom of Information Act request in June. He has said those documents show that thousands of dollars had been issued to Nagel to cover questionable expenses, such as gas and restaurant expenses.

Jesseman has said the board was unaware of some of the purchases Nagel had been making because they were lumped in with other expenses, or Nagel did not produce receipts.

Moser made no further comment about closing the investigation.

“No charges will be filed,” he said.
