Mayor asks to put chief replacement on agenda

 


The selection of Grand Coulee’s police chief will be on the Civil Service Commission agenda when it meets Aug. 4.

The request that it be placed on the agenda was made by Mayor Chris Christopherson Monday.

The Civil Service Commission meets at 5:30 p.m. on the first Monday of the month in the city council chamber.

At least two council members, David Tylor and Paul Townsend, had asked if the council was going to be involved in the selection of a new police chief to replace Chief Mel Hunt, who is retiring Oct. 1, of this year.

In a telephone interview sometime ago, the mayor had suggested that he was inclined to bypass the Civil Service Commission.

Civil Service Commission Chair Alan Cain spoke out about the selection process (see separate story) late last week, stating that it should go before his commission.
