Police chief announcement anticipated

From Westminster there are indications that the city this morning will announce its next chief of police.  After a closed door session, Mayor Brian Ramey said he expects an announcement to be made this morning–once City Administrator Chris Carter gets an answer to a question.  The new chief will fill the void created by this summer’s retirement of Dean Awalt.  In the interim, the Oconee Sheriff’s Office has assigned Capt. Greg Reed to assist the department.
