The Town of Sweetser will soon have a permanent town marshal. The town council voted to hire interim Town Marshal Bill Freet on a full-time basis.
Council President Travis LeMaster says after full consideration of five candidates’ applications, Freet was a unanimous choice.
Freet has been serving in the position on a temporary basis, following former Town Marshal Chris Tarlton’s resignation seven months ago after allegations surfaced of employee discrimination.
LeMaster says the council has full confidence in Freet to keep the Sweetser community safe.
