Mayville Police Chief Resigns

3/31/17 – The Mayville Common Council accepted the resignation of Police Chief Christopher MacNeill following a closed session meeting last night. MacNeill was placed on administrative leave on February 9. Mayor Robert Boelk said in a February press release that the city became aware of an allegation that took place in 2011 involving MacNeill, who had been a 17-year veteran of the department. Earlier this month, the Mayville council authorized the mayor to file a formal complaint with the city’s Police and Fire Commission and to request Misconduct in Public Office charges from the state Attorney General’s office. No charges have been filed.
