Clark picks interim police chief

WATERLOO (KWWL) -- New Waterloo Mayor Buck Clark has selected an interim police chief after current Chief Tom Jennings retires later this week. Captain John Beckman will hold the job while a search is underway.

The official appointment will take place Monday night at the City Council meeting.

Beckman has been with the Waterloo police department for 35 years. He will serve as interim chief until a permanent police chief is selected. That hiring process is in the early stages.

Also at Monday night's meeting, Clark will recommend the reappointment of Fire Chief Doug Carter, City attorney Jim Walsh, City Engineer Eric Thorson and Deputy City Clerk Carol Failor -- all positions up for review annually.
