City Council members will host an open discussion on the proposed appointment of a new police chief for the City of Hattiesburg and they're inviting you to participate. The public hearing comes after Mayor Johnny Dupree asked City Council members to give their final confirmation of 56-year-old Frazier Bolton as police chief.
The city council had put off Bolton's confirmation vote for 2 months while members checked his background and references and completed work on the budget. Several council members say they feel it isn't the right time to appoint a new police chief but that's not stopping Dupree from putting it on Tuesday's City Council agenda.
The open discussion will be held at the Jackie Dole Sherrill Community Center on Monday at 5 p.m. Anyone who wants to address the council will be asked to sign in before the discussion begins.
If Bolton is named police chief, he would be replacing former chief David Wynn.
