Shelter Island Justice Court Clerk Beverley Pelletier has submitted her resignation to the Town Board effective at close of business on February 23.

Ms. Pelletier, 65, was arrested last month on a charge of unlawful possession of marijuana. She was then suspended from her job with pay pending resolution of her case.
