Central City Board Swears in New Police Chief
Maloy, affectionately nicknamed "Mongo" by Village board members after a character from the Mel Brooks movie "Blazing Saddles", says he plans to bring the police department up to speed with new technology and revitalize their employment numbers.
"Well, I'd like to upgrade our record keeping and keep it up to date. I'd also like to get our staffing levels back up to where it used to be, and also get our officers up to speed on new equipment like tasers and that kind of thing." Maloy said.
The board also approved a new computer purchase from H&H Computers of Centralia as well as an interfund loan from the general fund to the MFT fund in the amount of $5,231.40 to cover the costs of oiling roads.
The board announced that Trick or Treat will take place on October 25th between 6 and 8pm. Police officers will hand out candy that evening.
