Dan Lucas will move to a position at the Univesity of Central Missouri as of March 31st.  Sergeant Jim Lynn will serve as Interim Police Chief for the next six months.

“That period will be used to basically do a review of how he’s performing, as well as how he feels about the job itself,” said Klussman.

They will use the time to select the next chief.  They do not plan to add a full-time officer until the Police Chief position has been determined.  Lucas has been approved to serve as a reserve in the Concordia Police Department.

The Board also accepted the 2013/2014 budget.

A bill that ensures the city will still collect a five percent franchise fee on electric rates was also approved.
