Commission Promotes Police Officers

By  | 

The City Commission met on Nov. 8, 2006, for one of the last times as that group of commissioners elected back in 2004.

At the special meeting, the Commission approved the promotions of several police officers to fill out the new look under new Chief Doug Hawkins.

Joe Manning and John Stewart were appointed deputy chiefs while Marieca Brown was named assistant police chief.

The Commission also voted to create an audit committee.

The committee will serve as checks and balances for the city and will be comprised of city officials as well as people from the community.

In addition, the Commission voted to take away the responsibility of purchasing from the city's internal auditor to avoid what City Manager Kevin DeFebbo calls "a conflict of interest".

The internal auditor will focus strictly on auditing the city.
