The Town of Webb Board adopted a resolution on Tuesday, where it agreed to retirement terms with Police Chief John Russell.
The retirement will occur on December 2, 2014.
The agreement provides for Chief Russell’s coverage in the Town of Webb Health Plan.
Accumulated sick leave and vacation time will be paid as comp time in equal installments until his retirement date.
During the same session, the board also passed a resolution to amend its Municipal Cooperation Agreement with the Town of Inlet.
The agreement, originally enacted on October 18, 2006, structures joint law enforcement services between the towns.
The amendment will allow Inlet Police Chief Andrew Kalil to concurrently act as Temporary Part-time Chief for the Town of Webb.
The Webb resolution states that the amendment is necessitated due to the Town of Webb being without the services of a police chief presently.
It authorizes Town of Webb Supervisor Ted Riehle to sign and execute the amendment to the joint services agreement and take all of the actions necessary to carry out its terms.
Under the amendment, Kalil will be providing supervisory services to the Town of Webb as needed in addition to his Inlet duties.
According to Supervisor Riehle, the Kalil appointment is an interim step for the Town of Webb.
The town is planning to conduct a search for a full-time, permanent police chief in the near future, to replace retiring Chief Russell.
