AMERICUS, GA (WALB) - The city manager says finding a new police chief is one of his top priorities.
The lone finalist withdrew his name last week after going through several rounds of interviews and a community event. The department has been without a chief since Brian Carney resigned in June.
"It's a very critical position. All of our position, department head, positions, are critical. This one is very critical at this point because it's been vacant for quite a while," said City Manager Steve Kennedy.
Kennedy hopes to resume the search after the new year and has no specific time table for filling the position.
