Chaffee accepts police resignations

Tuesday, January 20, 2004

Emerging from closed session, the Chaffee City Council accepted the resignations of police chief Larry Corn and Sgt. David Ivester without comment Monday night.

Corn turned in his resignation Jan. 9, and Ivester resigned Wednesday.

The resignation letter provided no reasons for leaving the force.

Their resignations occurred about a month after Cpl. Wayne Hampton also resigned.

Corn did not attend Monday's meeting, Ivester did.

The exodus cut the city's six-person force in half, but Hampton's replacement will begin work Friday.

The council also accepted the resignation of Councilman Doug Dirnberger, who cited conflicts with other meetings and family responsibilities as his reasons for leaving the council.
