8/29/17 – The City of Mayville has extended a contract offer to Interim Police Chief Ryan Vossekuil for him to become the city’s permanent chief. The position was offered last Thursday by the city’s Police and Fire Commission pending a background check, Vossekuil now has 72 hours to accept the terms. The vacancy was opened when former Police Chief Chris MacNeill resigned in March amidst allegations of wrongdoing in office after 17 years with the department. MacNeill allegedly altered documents in 2011 to help the son of a Mayville police officer get into the army. Vossekuil has been with the department just shy of 15 years.
