LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) – The town of Wells is closer to naming a new police chief. In Monday night's city council meeting three prospective hires were interviewed in a closed session.
The vacancy came in February, when former Chief Barry Starnes was fired for what we're told were behavior issues.
Among the applicants, a current police officer with the City of Alto.
As of news time, no decision regarding the police chief position had been made.
