The police chief of a northern Iowa city has been demoted back to officer.
The Nashua City Council made that decision on Monday regarding the city's chief, Ernie Willsher.
Mayor Deanne Lantow said in the demotion notice to Willsher on June 20 that his attitude is to blame, but she did not go into specifics.
Willsher has 30 days to appeal the decision and request a formal hearing.
Officer Paul Becthold was named interim chief of the four-member department. Nashua has about 1,700 residents.
