MAGNOLIA, Miss. (AP) - Magnolia will have an appointed police chief beginning in the next term.

The board of aldermen voted 3-2 Tuesday to switch from an elected position.

The Enterprise-Journal reports (http://bit.ly/ThmE8b ) the change does not affect Police Chief Ray Reynolds’ current term, which has about three full years left.

Reynolds says he has no plans to challenge the decision in court.

Reynolds was first elected to the police chief’s job in 2001. He ran unopposed for a fourth term last year.
