The Creston police chief who was fired by the Mayor Monday will not be leaving the force. Creston Mayor Mike Tamerius explained today. He says he received a letter of resignation from the former chief Bill Heathrington, and says Heatherington has decided to remain with the department in his former position as captain. Tamerius says he’s “excited” that Heatherington is staying with the department as “his leadership in that role certainly will be of some value to us.” Tamerius however, will not say why he fired Heathrington from the top job. Heatherington was appointed chief in 1996 and has been on the Creston force since 1974.
