Public forum on police chief hiring tonight
If you have an opinion on what kind of police chief should be hired in Eureka, tonight’s your night to tell the City Council. The first of two forums will be held at 6pm at the Wharfinger.
But if you miss it you’ll have a second chance on September 14th at the Fire Training Classroom, 3030 L St.
The forums will consist of several small tables where citizens can offer input to Council members and staff, who will switch tables after a time to
talk listen to another small group.
Citizens should be ready to talk about the major issues facing Eureka, what skills and experience they believe a police chief should have, and what role the chief should play in the community.
The facilitator, Mary Notsurehowtospellherlastname, told the city council Tuesday that if people still have angst over the firing of former chief Garr Nielsen, Council members should hear them out and then redirect conversation to issue at hand.
