Dawson-- The search for a Dawson Police Chief stalled after city council members couldn't agree on a candidate.

Now, the search has entered round two with a more extensive advertising campaign.

Former police chief Lee Webb resigned in April after first being suspended under protest. Since then, the department hasn't had a chief and the quest for a new one is ongoing.

The city council, after not agreeing on an applicant, asked the city manager to re-advertise. Barney Parnacott says, "We ran it about forty-five days, the second round. We have many of the same applicants in the second round as the first round since we are trying to just broaden our pool of applicants."

The last day to apply was Monday. There are twenty-three candidates, including three from the Dawson Police Department. After background checks, the city council will narrow the field to a short list before choosing a new chief.
