We’ve been telling you about the recent shakeup in the city of Linn Creek. Police chief Trevor Dowdney recently resigned from his position and that was followed by the termination of City Clerk Sharron Hammer after several years on the job. Matt Burns will start serving as acting chief of police this Thursday and could be officially hired for the position by the board of alderman at their January 8th meeting. Bill Mundhausen serves on the city’s board of alderman. He says Chief Dowdney will be missed.
The city also now has a new clerk. Cherlie Johnston assumed her new duties as city clerk yesterday (Monday) and had actually worked in that position during the 1990’s.
