Cave City Police Chief Retires

An area community will soon be looking for a new police chief. Earlier this week, Cave City Police chief, Billy Minton announced he would retire.

The decision was apparently sparked by several heated issues between the police department and city council.

The council recently decided to no longer offer cell phones to city employees or to allow officers or fire department personnel to take city vehicles home.

Minton said he doesn’t want to continue battling city council. His retirement takes effect May 1, 2007.
