More Developments In Police Chief Resignation

More developments to report today in the sudden resignation of Monterey police chief Tim Murphy last week. The Hilltop Express newspaper, which is run by Monterey Alderman Dale Welch, is reporting that even as rumors fly, town officials have been asked to remain quiet about the matter as an investigation begins involving the district attorney’s office and state auditors. Welch says applications for police chief are being taken at Monterey City Hall now through November 30th. Starting wages for Monterey police chief begin at $16.81 per hour. After a six-month probationary period, it goes to $17.46; and, after a year, to $18.74. K-9 Officer Larry Bates is currently serving as interim police chief.
