Lowell's interim Police Chief, Erik Matson, is now the town's new police chief.  On Tuesday, the Lowell Town Council voted across the board in favor of Matson being the south Lake County's town top cop.  The Times is reporting that 3rd District Councilman Donald Parker suggested a contract of no more than three years be drawn up by the Lowell Police Commission and town attorneys.  When Matson was appointed interim chief back in March he said that :being chief was never part of the plan," according to the article.
That despite be acknowledged for demonstating significant leadership and productivity and receiving accolades for exemplary police work in 2011.  Matson replaces Chief John Shelhart who resigned in March and had been chief since 2006.  Read more about Lowell's new police chief at:  http://www.nwitimes.com.
