Greenfield chiefs not expected to be selected tonight

Sept. 19, 2011

The Greenfield Police and Fire Commission will meet tonight but will not approve new chiefs for the city's police and fire departments.

Both departments have been directed by interim Police Chief Bradley Wentlandt and interim Fire Chief Jon Cohn since early summer. The interim chiefs have substantial support on the commission, which only interviewed them and no other candidates for the job two weeks ago.

"We're not making any decision tonight," said commission chairman Dennis Clark.

Instead, the commission discussed the information gleaned from the oral interviews.

The interim chiefs were appointed through the end of the year, but those appointments can be extended.
