By Rob Sussman, WJBD News

Kinmundy's Chief of Police resigned and a new full-time police officer was named at a City Council meeting on Thursday.  However, you may have trouble telling the two apart because they were born as triplets.  

Tyler Parker, who has been in the position for a year, stepped down after obtaining a new position as a correctional officer with the Marion County Jail.  Parker will remain on staff on a part-time basis as the juvenile case officer.

His brother and fellow officer, Cory Parker, will hired as a full-time officer to replace Tyler. 

The council also approved personnel changes at the water plant.  John Roberts of Farina was hired to help operate the water plant on a temporary basis until a new employee hired Thursday night, Ronnie Potter of Kinmundy, is able to pass his Class 'A' operating license.  A current city employee, Mike Webster, will work towards his Class 'B' license.  

In other action, the approved an agreement with Sentinel Pest Control to provide services at City Hall, the City Library, and the Downtown Building.
