Currently, no one has been appointed interim police chief, according to Bates, who said she will be searching for someone to fill that position. In the meantime, Bates said she will be in charge of the police department.
“We want to convey our thanks to Tony for his service to Yellow Springs,” Council Vice-President Lori Askeland said at the meeting. No other comments were given. Council met in executive session for about an hour an 15 minutes following their regular meeting.
