In what might have been the shortest meeting to date for the new Luther Town of Trustees, members met, said the Pledge of Allegiance, and all voted yes on a motion to name Deputy Chief Mike Class to the position of interim chief.
Class has been on medical leave but came back to work Tuesday and was at the meeting Tuesday’s evening with a group of friends who were there to support him. There were no comments made during the meeting.
The whole meeting was finished in about two minutes. The board is also accepting applications for the position of police chief.
Meantime, word is that former Police Chief Marcus Thurman has accepted the police chief position in Davenport, Oklahoma, east of Luther in Lincoln County.
After the meeting, Chief Class said he was ready to do a good job for the Town of Luther. He has been in law enforcement for two decades and with the Town of Luther for seven years.
“I want the Town to know I’m here for the Town of Luther and safety of the people. I will always have an open door for the citizens of Luther to come to me with their concerns,” he said.
EDITOR’S NOTE: due to some unknown (irritating) technical glitch, photos from the meeting will not post. We’ll try again later.
