The search for a new Police Chief in Pella continues. Former Chief Michael Marcinkowski retired from the force in September. Since then, Lt. David Beukelman has been acting as Interim Police Chief. Pella City Administrator Mike Nardini says the City has hired Des Moines consultant Mulder and Associates to review the applications and make recommendations on the candidates. Applications are being accepted until October 14th. Nardini says the City hopes to have a new Police Chief named by the first of December.
