Lt. Paul Haase is among one of four finalists for the position of Chief of Police.

Haase is currently the acting chief, following the departure of Robert Bokinsky. Bokinsky moved to Arizona for family reasons.

The other candidates, recommended for final interviews by the Civil Service Commission, include Troy Bacon of Frankfurt, Ind.; Fredrick Jortner of Cheshire, Conn.; and Shane McSheehy of Eustis, Fla.

The Pella City Council has on its June 2 agenda action scheduled to accept the list of certified candidates.
