CLAY TOWNSHIP, Michigan — The owner of the Harsens Island ferry is in a dispute with the state agency that regulates its operations.
The Times Herald of Port Huron reports (http://bwne.ws/1AJlVi0 ) the Michigan Public Service Commission has ordered Champion's Auto Ferry to explain why it failed to provide documentation the commission says the company is required to submit.
In a November filing, the commission staff called Champion's "serially noncompliant."
The staff also asked the commission to fine Champion's for failing to provide financial information, reverse its 2013 approval of a $1 rate increase and order Champion's to refund ticket money collected after the $1 rate increase.
Dave Bryson, president of Champion's Auto Ferry, says the commission doesn't have the right to the information it's requesting.
Harsens Island is in St. Clair County's Clay Township.
