The Town Marshall of Sweetser has officially been terminated from his position. Chris Tarlton, who served as Town Marshall since 2008, was initially placed on administrative leave in August after allegations surfaced of misconduct involving discrimination of an employee.
The Sweetser Town Council, with one member absent, voted unanimously Wednesday night to dismiss Tarlton. The town hall was packed full of protesters, one of which was removed by Grant County Sheriff's officials for disorderly conduct.
Tarlton was not present at the special meeting.
Tarlton has hired an attorney and has five days to request a hearing on the matter. Meanwhile, Bill Freet will remain interim Town Marshall.
