The City of Comer has received 37 applications to fill the position of Chief of Police.
The office is open following the resignation of Brent Zellner who is running for the Democratic nomination for Sheriff of Madison County. A number of these applications came from out of state.
The city council is conducting workshops and meetings to narrow the field and select those candidates to be interviewed for the job. They hope to narrow the list to the top seven.
In other business during its July meeting, the council once again heard complaints about speeding on Madison Street. Pam Moore of that street addressed the council about problems she has walking her special needs daughter in the area.
Mayor Jody Blackmon apologized to Moore because she does not feel safe, and promised to do a better job. The council agreed to move the flashing speed warning sign to Madison Street and to instruct the city police to seek better ways to enforce the speed limit on Madison Street._
