New Butler mayor to demote police chief

Thursday, Jan. 9, 2014, 6:21 p.m.
 

Butler's new mayor said Thursday he is demoting the city's police chief.

Lt. Ronald Brown will replace Chief Ronald Fierst effective Sunday, said Mayor Tom Donaldson.

Fierst has been chief for nearly two years and has worked at the department for 35 years. Fierst will become a captain, Donaldson said.

Brown “thinks more like me,” the mayor said. “He has always been very proficient on what he's done.”

Donaldson, a Republican, took office Monday.
