Police Chief Search Update

Spencer, IA (KICD)–The topic of hiring Spencer’s next Police Chief was talked about at this week’s Spencer City Council meeting.

A resolution setting the high limit of the salary matrix for Spencer’s next Police Chief at $80,000 passed unanimously. Councilmember Ron Hanson noted some concern over that figure.

Councilmember Steve Bomgaars agreed with Hanson, but did not that the $80,000 salary is on the high end.

As far as the search process goes, City Manager Bob Fagen noted that May 1st, 2nd, and 3rd will be key dates.

Candidates names will only be released once they are considered finalists with a new chief to be in place by July 1st.
