Willmar City Council OKs process to fill positions at police dept.


WILLMAR — The Willmar City Council has taken steps to fill three Police Department positions and to fill the Civic Center Arena manager’s position.

The council, during a 53-minute meeting Tuesday night, accepted the recommendation of the Labor Relations Committee to open the hiring process to fill the four positions.

One of the three police openings will occur when Chief David Wyffels retires May 31 after 35½ years in law enforcement.
