MONTICELLO, Utah (AP) - The Monticello police chief has been fired after an investigation into how he handled a 911 call involving one of his own officers.

KUTV-TV reports (https://bit.ly/1mVN11I ) that the City Council voted Tuesday to fire Kent Adair and pay him a severance package through the end of March.

Adair declined to comment after the council meeting.

Adair was placed on leave last month after a 911 call on Dec. 2 came in from the wife of a police sergeant. The dispatcher who answered the call said he would send an officer over, but it ended up taking until the next morning for someone to respond.

Officials say the dispatcher asked officers to respond and they declined. She called Adair to explain the situation and they agreed the call would be answered in the morning.
