UPDATE: Special meeting to discuss Mantachie police department

MANTACHIE – The Board of Aldermen plans to move forward Thursday toward making some hires for the police department, WTVA.com reports.

The board fired Police Chief Terry Jones and all three officers earlier this month.

Mayor Jeff Butler says he expects the board to review the applications for police chief and narrow that search down to the top two or three finalists.

The meeting is set for 5:30 pm.
