    The search for a new Police Chief is underway in Electra. 

    The City Council is now taking applications for those wishing to fill the position after long time Police Chief Johnny Morris was fired in January.

    Tonight councilors moved closer to finding his replacement and getting their town back to one with a fully functioning Police Department.

    "We are a long way into the process, long time into the process of filling this vacancy. It's been a year approaching, something like that, last year when this first started so we're making headway. We've received some good applicants. we're coming up roses, I feel good about it," Mayor Curtis Warner said.  

    Applications will be taken until the end of June.

    Council will then review them and begin the interviewing process.
