Special Council Meeting Cancelled Again

Another attempt, planned for tonight, to approve and sign the interim police chief contract is put on hold.

For the second time this week, a special municipal council meeting scheduled with the purpose of approving and signing the contract with Capt. Willie Richet to act as interim police chief has been cancelled.

, was canceled that night when only two council members – Council President Gary Simpson and Councilwoman Linda Christian – were able to attend. The meeting was rescheduled for Thursday night and cancelled again.

"[Richet] was already voted in as the interim police chief, so the approval of the contract is basically a formality," Simpson told The Times Herald.

A notice from the municipality indicates that the matter will be added to the agenda for the regular March 5 municipal council meeting.
