Cold Spring City Council Wants To Close The Book On Police Chief Situation [AUDIO]
COLD SPRING — The Cold Spring Police Chief situation continues to be a consistent topic discussed at the city council meetings.
Last night (Wednesday) the topic of what to do about the situation was brought up by another board member.
City administrator Paul Hetland says the council would like to close the books on this issue and are looking at their options.
On January 29th the council offered Eric Johnson the position as police chief. Further review found that Johnson had allowed his CPR and First Responder certifications to lapse, which resulted in a no confidence vote.
With the police chief decision up in the air, it led to Wakefield Township to rethink their contract with the city.
The contract hasn’t been updated since 2000. Hetland says they will meet with Wakefield Township and Richmond in the near future to discuss revising the current contract.
