The Mayville Police and Fire Commission gave its recommendation on August 17 for the vacant Chief of Police position. Captain Ryan Vossekuil was recommended for hire.
The recommendation to hire will be brought to the City Council in an upcoming meeting for final approval. The hire is contingent on background checks, but Vossekuil did accept the position during the open meeting.
Vossekuil has been the acting Chief during the transition and has been with the department since 2003. More information on this hire will be in an upcoming edition of the Pionier.
