Who's the Chief?

By  | 

When Gary Deem was chosen for a vacancy on the Wood County Commission, the search began for his successor.

That successor is scheduled to be named and voted on at a special meeting Monday night of Vienna City Council.

Mayor David Nohe told us last month that he wanted to look within the department for the new chief, and Deem Monday morning told us he believes the new chief will be an existing member of the department.

Deem himself was on the Vienna Police force for several years before becoming chief in 1968.
