Chaos in Colwyn

For a tiny little town, Colwyn Borough has more than its share of problems.

For more than a year, controversy has swirled around its volunteer fire company.

The borough council and police chief have been sniping at each other for months over the question of overtime.

Questions have been raised about work done on a borough police patrol car by a shop owned by a councilman and whether he has the proper license to do the work.

This all came to a head at a special meeting of Colwyn Borough Council last night.

And what did they decide to do? They fired Police Chief Bryan Hills. The chief vowed to appeal the ruling. Several of his officers are expected to stage a protest at borough hall this morning. Some may even resign from the force. Exactly who will be patrolling borough streets remains to be seen.

In the meantime, residents showed up at last night’s council meeting to ask their representatives what is going on.

No doubt they were less than thrilled with what they learned.

This mess with Colwyn is out of control. No way should they have fired Chief Hills. Everyone respects him. He's a great guy, and a great chief. This is just another example of the Colwyn council firing someone for trying to keep them honest. They fired the other councilman, and cut the hours for the code enforcement workers who spoke out, and the council president threatens employees? She's the one who should be fired.
