Waynesville plans for McCulloch retirement

Waynesville Police Committee members spent most of their Thursday afternoon meeting in closed session deciding their next step once longtime Police Chief Don McCulloch retires next spring.

McCulloch submitted his resignation on Aug. 28 and his last day in office will be March 1.
City leaders had planned to use a “chief-designee” position, but Police Committee Chairman Ed Conley said a legal review shows that may not work without a change in city ordinances.

“The wording is kind of ambiguous,” Conley said. “The second part of the paragraph apparently stops us from appointing a chief-designee as long as we have a chief.”

Conley said city council members will check with City Attorney Ralph Muxlow as well as William Morgan, the former city attorney who wrote the ordinance, to determine the intent of the ordinance and how to proceed.
No decision has yet been made on selecting a new chief, Conley said, and the vacancy has not been publicly advertised.

“Right now we’re just looking at what we want to look for,” Conley said. “We are trying to establish the criteria. Obviously, whenever you can promote from within, that is always considered to be the best way to go with things.”

In other business, police committee members discussed what to do about a fitness center owner on the corner of Historic Route 66 and Highway 17 who has posted “no parking” signs on his building.
“The chief said he will look into that situation, because obviously we are not going to enforce private parking regulations,” Conley said. “It is a city street and we control whether you are able to park in a particular situation.”

Installation of 27 mobile police radios obtained through a $56,000 federal grant is on hold for a few weeks until the city’s radio installer recovers from an injury, Conley said. The radios will also be installed in the city’s utility trucks, according to City Administrator Bruce Harrill.

“The purpose is to get us all in a disaster on the same channel,” Harrill said.

Joe wrote on Sep 13, 2007 2:51 PM: " Im with Police Reform 100%. They need someone other than another good ole boy to fix that mess. What is wrong with Conley he need to wake up I think its time for him to go too. "

Police Reform wrote on Sep 13, 2007 8:05 AM: " The City of Waynesville NEEDS to ensure that they hire the new chief of police from an outside agency! Please don't hire someone locally based on the "good ole' boy system." The vacancy announcement needs to be opened at minimum state wide. They need to hire a qualified individual from a larger agency outside of the area who is not tied to this community. Having someone who is willing to make changes and take a professional and progressive attitude towards policing would be a great improvement for this community. "

"  FitNFree wrote on Sep 12, 2007 5:25 PM: " As a patron of the fitness center on the corner, I am amazed at the LACK of cooperation with downtown businesses to ensure them to have adaquate parking. The larger building attached to the fitness center is fortunate they have no need for local parking because they would starve! How did the supermarket do it?? Oh wait they had "JIMS PARKING ONLY SIGNS". "

Below is a link for the Waynesville Police Department Tip Line. This is completely confidential and is available 24/7 and is checked at least twice a day. If you have information about something within the city limits of Waynesville please feel free to use this service. I am not sure if Pulaski County Sheriff's Department has a tip line or any of the other departments for that matter. If you feel this is the only way you can get the information to the correct department please feel free to use this service. I will make sure that it gets to the correct agency. Just make sure you note that the location so that I can make sure the right agency gets the information.
