I am very happy for Chief Spiller as I know how I have enjoyed my retirement, however I will definitely miss his leadership and his presence in our city. He is a remarkable individual and has brought a spirit of cooperation between our outstanding police force and the community that had not been present to the extent it is now. That is a gift and a legacy that will live on and continue to benefit the community and the police force as well. I thank Chief Spiller for his years of service and investing himself fully in our community, a win/win for all.

Gee I thought he was already retired. He has been conspicuously absent in any press conferences or follow-up to major incidents such as the bank robbery and shoot out in February and the recent fugitive manhunt last week. We will now have two major vacancies in both the police and fire departments. Can we please try this time to hire from within (Fire Dept) and folks who will stay for a substantial period of time?
