CPD's Douglas signs on for another year

-A A +A

Commissioners praise performance

By Mark Scohier, Staff writer

Chiefland's head of police will be moving into his ninth year with the city. Commissioners voted unanimously 4-0 Monday night to renew CPD Chief Robert Douglas' contract, noting only a 35-cent increase to his cell phone allowance as the only change from last year. Mayor Teal Pomeroy was absent from the public evaluation.

Douglas, who pulls in about $58,000 as chief, was given high marks on his yearly evaluation, which took place just before his contract approval. His overall composite score out of 5 was 4.39.

"That's pretty dag gone good," Vice Mayor Teresa Barron told Douglas, who responded with saying he was pleased with the evaluation.

Commissioner Betty Walker, who gave Douglas his highest marks at 260 points, said she's impressed with how well Douglas has stayed within a limited budget.

"Only one thing, Chief: You're gonna' have to come over here to Levy County," she said, playing into a joke commissioners play on Douglas each year at his evaluation.

Walker, though pleased with Douglas, said it would be nice if CPD officers were a little more visible in the community.
