West Buechel police chief resigns, council needs interim chief

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - Tempers flared Tuesday night as the city of West Buechel looked to replace its police chief, Jeff Manning, after he resigned over an altercation with the mayor.

Council members met at a hastily called meeting to decide who will take over as interim chief. The meeting was determined to be illegal because the council did not publicize the meeting 24 hours in advance, which violates state law.

The group will meet again on Thursday. The department must have a chief in place by Friday or the city will be without a police force.
