Bismarck Offers Elg Police Chief Job | VideoJoel Porter | 12/18/2012
As KFYR-TV previously reported, Elg is a finalist for the same job in both South Bend, Indiana, and Bellingham, Washington.
The commission went into executive session during Tuesday`s meeting to discuss the new chief`s salary and benefit package. Elg has until midnight Thursday to either accept the offer or decline.
"I think that if Mr. Elg accepts this position, we`re very fortunate to have some individuals that will ensure the continued success of our police department as we move forward," city commissioner Parrell Grossman said.
Bismarck deputy police chief Dan Donlin still has a chance to become the new police chief. The commission also certified Donlin for consideration. Should Elg pass on the job, Donlin would be next in line.
