PLYMOUTH, N.C. (AP) - The new town manager in Plymouth is searching for a new police chief in hopes of building a good atmosphere within the department.

WITN-TV in Washington reports (https://bit.ly/1Fhigr8) new Town Manager Sam Styons says the former interim police chief has been reinstated while the town considers applicants. Styons says a decision on a permanent chief should be made within the next 30 to 60 days.

Styons said the city is trying to stabilize the chief’s position, and the first step was to return Willie Williams to the interim role.

In July, Police Chief Kelly Challand said he was forced to resign after nearly three weeks. Prior to that, town manager Joanne Floyd also resigned.

Styons had been a consultant and interim town manager in Plymouth before he returned in August.
