Those who worked to recall Tamarac City Commissioner Patricia "Patte" Atkins-Grad plan on turning in their petitions on Wednesday.

The group collected hundreds of signatures and will turn them in to the Tamarac City Clerk's office at 5 p.m. Wednesday, according to an email from Sharon Aron Baron with Tamarac Talk.

READ: Recall petition

Jurors acquitted Atkins-Grad of accepting bribes from two developers in Dec. 2012.

The group needed signatures from 10 percent of the voters in Atkins-Grad's District 2, or about 1,200 names. They have until Feb. 15 to get the required signatures.

If the group gets the required signatures, Atkins-Grad will have a chance to respond before a recall election.
