Horton City Commission selects new Chief of Police
09/29/2023

(KNZA)--The Horton City Commission has selected a new Chief of Police.

The Commission in a special meeting Wednesday evening voted 3-2 to authorize City Administrator John Calhoon to offer the position to William Smith, Jr., of Paola, contingent on a successful background check.

Commissioner Tina Nigh and Mayor Byran Stirton cast the dissenting votes.

Smith was among five candidates interviewed by the Commission.

The position came open last month following the resignation of former Chief of Police Jonathan Boller. His last day on the job was August 25.

Assistant Police Chief Cody Spire is overseeing the department until a new Chief of Police is hired.
