Council approves safety director position

Posted:

WATERLOO (KWWL)--  A new form of management proposed in the city of Waterloo has passed by council members.

Since taking office, Mayor Buck Clark has been working on the reorganization of city government-- including making current Police Chief Dan Trelka, the director of safety services. With the title, he will oversee both the police and fire departments.

At the city council meeting Monday night, members voted 5-2 to adopt the ordinance, passing the motion.

Mayor Clark has said if this doesn't work, he'll go back to having separate chief positions each department.
