Excerpt from the Sunday editorial: Like many in Sandusky, we're disappointed and impatient with the long delay appointing a new police chief. It's been more than five years since the department had a permanent leader. Only in Sandusky, perhaps, could that happen.
We're disappointed, too, that the search process was mishandled, cost much more than it should have, and that most Sandusky city commissioners were oblivious to the expense, the charter violations and other shortcomings that occurred. City commission's majority coalition appeared unconcerned with the integrity of the process.
We're also disappointed that current acting police Chief John Orzech's leadership and accomplishments and his value to the city seem to be overlooked or under-appreciated.
It's time for city manager Nicole Ard to make a decision.
