CHENOA--The city's police chief is back to work after being fired by the mayor earlier this week.
It's a story WMBD-31 took action to investigate.
Travis Cornwall became Chenoa's acting police chief last year.
But mayor Donald Corrie says a lack of communication, and disobedience on Cornwall's part prompted him to pull the plug on the position.
That upset many people, who pride Cornwall on his commitment to the city's safety.
After a meeting between the two parties this afternoon, Cornwall's back on the force, with the understanding all decisions must go through the mayor--who's also the police commissioner.
Residents hope the compromise goes both ways, as they work with the mayor on future issues.
"That is ultimately what we're concerned with," said resident Chris Wilder. "We would like him to listen to the city people and work with the city's people in a little better manner."
Cornwall will serve as acting police chief for three more months.
If the position works out, he'll become Chenoa's official chief this fall.
