Holly, MI- After accepting the resignation of Police Chief Mike Story, The Village of Holly has announced that former Lt. Scott Fischer has been appointed Acting Chief.
Fisher retired from the Holly Police Department after 33 years of service at the rank of Lieutenant, and for the last 7 years has worked for the Oakland County Sheriff in court services.
“Scott is familiar with the officers, schools, businesses, and the Holly community,” said Village Manager Jerry Walker.
“Advertisement for the Chief’s position will begin Tuesday, September 3rd. Scott Fischer will serve in the position of Acting Chief for 60-90 days while we conduct the hiring process,” Walker said in a press release.
The change in leadership comes after the unexpected resignation of Chief Story who had been serving as Chief since 2012. A consent agreement between the parties prohibits disclosure of the circumstances leading to his departure.
Residents attended a special meeting Tuesday where the Village Council voted to approve the agreement and accept his resignation. Councilperson Bob Alsop was the only no vote.
