Like I always say "a bureaucrat is just a bureaucrat, even it's the police." They exist for one reason. To consume more and more and more of taxpayers money.
Since he's so super, why not let him serve in all three roles while the budget issues are worked out?
What!!! Come on Victoria - stop hiring from within and give other people a chance. Another one bites the dust..........
So, are you saying the city could just get a Ronald McDonald statue to replace him?
At this point in time, this Police Department needs a strong chief who has actually worked the street and investigated crimes in a larger venue. That type of individual will not be hired though...because the city administration will want another "yes" man who the city manager can control.
Chief Ure is not a good ole boy. I wonder if you really know the man, you are posting about or only base your opinion on heresay.He is top notch and I actually know him, and what he stands for.
My vote is for Guerra or Wallace to have a shot at Chief. Congrats to Chief Ure, you will be missed.
Charmelle, we also need another Dog Catcher.
BeakusI join the military and retired after 25 years. I enjoy "MY" haircut short, high and tight. I know Mr Tyler was in a Air Borne Regiment i am pretty sure he like the hair cut then and now. You ought to pick on the the generation that never once put on the uniform and yet they were their hair short because it make them look (cough) uhh, tough.

Is this an increase in salary for Ure? If so,the pay scales are way out of kilter. I think that the COP is a more important position. Just my USD $.02
There goes the Good Ole' Boy system........come on, there has to be a better canidate than Ure........guess the system won't change in this backward town.
interesting, very interesting?
8 minutes since I posted my speculation and it was right.
KAVU just reported the search is on for not only a new fire chief, but also a new police chief.
Not a new administrative position exactly, there has always been a assistant city manager. But one whose main purpose is the VPD and VFD.
Almost the same position Ure held in Watauga, except he was called the Director of Public Safety. He has done the job before and is qualified.
The only thing I wonder about, is that now the COV will not only be looking for a new fire chief, but also a new chief of police. In other words a new administrative position might have been created by the COV.
@ GOP_LoveChild, just getting his ducks inline...Just wait till next election...now were we really surprised about this?
I bet he really wishes he could be appointed DA.
I bet our DA, the guy with the 1955 model flat top, didn't realize old Bruce has a big "S" on his T-shirt under that there uniform.
