The St. Martinville City Council voted Monday night to pull funding for the abolished assistant police chief position. The move came after concerns that keeping the funds for the position would require the council to fill it despite getting rid of it.
The most recent assistant chief, Nary Smith, is suing the city for age discrimination. The position has been vacant since Smith left the police department a few years ago.
