Peninsula again seeking police chief
PENINSULA — Peninsula Village once again is in the market for a police chief.
Mayor Doug Mayer said a candidate chosen for the job in November was disqualified during prehire testing. Mayer said a police chief selection committee recommended two candidates from the first pool of applicants, and he plans to talk with the remaining candidate.
Mayer said he hopes to act quickly to choose another candidate. He said he expects by the end of the week to be able to ask Council to schedule a special meeting to discuss the matter.
The village has been without a full-time chief since 2010. Sgt. Daniel Renz has been acting chief.
Council’s next regular meeting will take place Feb. 11 at 7 p.m. in the second-floor Council room of Peninsula Village Hall, located at the corner of state Route 303 and Akron-Peninsula Road.— By Pam Lifke
