Kimball city council to consider Mayor's appointments to council, Police Chief

The Kimball city council Monday evening will consider Mayor James Schnell's appointments to fill a vacant council position and for the position of Police Chief.

Jim Merryfield resigned from the council position in March to return to Afghanistan for a job he has been offered. Police Chief Mark Simpson's resignation was effective this past Monday following challenges to the accuracy of information he'd presented to another law enforcement agency. Police Captain Darrin Huff has been the Acting Police Chief since the resignation.

The council will also discuss water restrictions and whether to separate the clerk and treasurer positions. Rosie Russell currently serves in both positions.
