The Town of Hayden Mayor and Council went into executive session last week discuss the possible termination or resignation of the Police Chief Scott Gillen. After the executive session, the council said it would do an employee evaluation of Gillen at their Jan. meeting.
The council also heard a presentation from the League of Arizona Cities and Towns regarding town council procedures and how the council/manager form of government is required to operate.
Following the presentation, the council also discussed the hiring of Kathryn Quinn as the new Hayden Animal Control officers. Quinn was hired by the Town Manager Bill Leister.
Quinn has already received training and has started her position with the town but the council did not offer final approval on the hiring. Residents in the area have been filing complaints of dogs running loose.
The council also approved the purchase of gift cards for the town employees for the holidays. In Jan., the council will also be considering enacting a new town vehicle process.
