It has been three weeks since Morrill Police Chief Josh Catlin submitted his resignation, and now efforts are underway to find his successor.
Village Clerk Janine Schmidt says they have the position advertised through the League of Nebraska Municipalities, as well as the Wyoming Police Officer Association. She says they have had some applications already submitted, but there has been no formal date set on when the Village Board of Trustees will begin the interview process.
Sgt. Jay Muller is assuming the duties of Chief until a permanent replacement is hired.
Catlin had been with the Morrill Police Department for more than two-and-a-half years; working as a part time officer starting in January, 2014 and was appointed Police Chief in October, 2015.
