City Council Meeting 11/13/17 (Chillicothe Aerial Map, Airport Board, December Meeting Date, Police Chief, Fire Hire)

C-T 11 15 17 - Jon Maples, who was named Chillicothe police chief earlier this month, was sworn into the office Monday evening during the regular meeting of the Chillicothe City Council. Chillicothe Mayor Chuck Haney officially commissioned Maples to discharge the duties of police chief, and City Administrator Darin Chappell presented Maples with the police chief badge. Maple's wife, Katie, pinned the badge on her husband's uniform. Also on hand for the brief ceremony was their 2 1⁄ 2-year-old son, Logan. Maples, 29, is a 2006 Chillicothe High School graduate and has been serving as a Chillicothe police detective since 2014. He received his associate degree in criminal justice from North Central Missouri College and then graduated from the Missouri Western Law Enforcement Academy in 2008. Upon graduation, he was hired as a Livingston County Sheriff's deputy and then joined the Chillicothe Police Department as a patrolman in 2012. Maples was named chief following the retirement of Chief Rick Knouse.

Chillicothe City Council members on Monday approved the hiring of Casey Brock as a paid-by-call firefighter. The action was taken during executive session following the regular council meeting.


Chillicothe City Council members will meet for their regular meeting at 6:30 p.m. tonight (Monday) in the Council Chambers at City Hall. Just a few items are on the agenda. The council will discuss an aerial map of Chillicothe in conjunction with Livingston County and will consider a request from the Airport Board to meet every other month. The council also will discuss changing the date for the last meeting in December. The council usually meets on the second and last Monday of each month. In December, the last Monday of the month falls on Christmas Day, December 25.
