Mayor Michele Dale announced Wednesday night that Chief of Police Tim Storbeck is retiring.
Storbeck, who has been on the force for 28 years and seven in the position of chief, said he is leaving to spend more time with his family on the west coast and in Alaska.
“I’m going to miss the people (I work with),” Storbeck said. “It’s been over half my life that I’ve been with the police department.”
He said it was time for him to move on and do other things that he enjoys.
He also said he is proud of the work the department has done with the community, reaching out to residents and students in the schools.
“We have very dedicated officers working with the kids and the schools,” Storbeck said. “I’d like to see that continue.”
Storbeck, 54, will use the time he has banked to leave the department in mid-September, but will officially retire in May, he said.
Dale said there are others retiring in the department as well and that she will be working on adjusting officers to fill the vacancies in the command staff.
Storbeck said he is looking forward to traveling to see his family and enjoy his retirement.
