Two upper level waves will interact with a warm and very moist air mass to generate thunderstorms through Saturday. Lightning and torrential rainfall that could cause flash flooding are the primary threats...with a secondary threat of damaging winds. Turn around, don't drown!
12-12-06 Colbert city leaders and former police chief John Polston met Tuesday night, to discuss Polston's firing three weeks ago.
The city council passed a resolution tonight stating that all police officers must reside within seven miles of the city, and must live in Oklahoma.
Four current officers do not fit the requirements, so they will be asked to resign.
The resolution states existing officers will not be grandfathered in and new hires have forty-five days to meet the new requirements.
The personnel committee met in executive session to discuss why Polston was fired. They said they are tabling their response until another meeting on December 18.
Polston said he just wants to know why he was fired.
Colbert city policy states resolutions take effect within thirty days, leaving two police officers on the force.
