Police have apparently been asked to investigate perceived threats made by a member of the Sunrise Beach Fire Protection District. Former Board President Brian Layman went to the Sunrise Beach Police to file a report after a board meeting in August. In his report, he says that treasurer Bob Hemen made comments relating to the other board members having family members in the community. Layman claimed that the words and tone of the comments caused him to fear for his family’s safety. A second statement was provided to police by Denise Dill, the other member of the board. Layman resigned his position in September shortly after Dennis Reilly resigned as Chief. Hemen has since filed a petition with the court seeking to remove Dill from the board.
