By Shavonne Potts
CHINA GROVE ó The search for a new police chief has been narrowed down to three candidates.
The town council called a special meeting Monday to discuss the three candidates.
The search began in August and ended Sept. 18.
Ron Niland of Mount Airy-based All American Associates is handled the process.
Information about the three candidates has not been released.
Mayor Don Bringle said the council may or may not have reached a decision on that day. It’s not set that they must reach a decision by Monday night.
“It’s more of an update as to where we are,” he said.
Brett Bass is serving as interim chief since the firing of Hodge Coffield in May.
The meeting, which will begin at 6:30 p.m., is closed to the public.
