    Town of Greig clerk and tax collector Karin Fayle, 65, was charged Tuesday with official misconduct, a class “A” misdemeanor, and was released with an appearance ticket returnable to the Town of Greig Court at a later date for further court action. The investigation revealed that on July 15, 2011, a check in the amount of $17,364.63 was diverted from the watershed project to cover a known shortage in the town’s property tax account.
