Hortonville's police chief will keep his job.
The police commission announced this morning that Chief Michael Sullivan will be suspended without pay for two weeks. He's been on paid administrative leave since last October, during an internal investigation.
The village president and administrator wanted the commission to fire Sullivan.
Sullivan says he's ecstatic. He says it was an extreme learning experience, and the village needs to move on from here.
Sullivan acknowledges there are areas he needs to improve, and he says he'll do that. He called the decision by the police commission thoughtful and fair.
He was accused of making derogatory comments, and lying during the internal investigation.
During his suspension, Sullivan decided to run for village board. If he wins a spot on the board this spring, he legally can't do both jobs. Sullivan says he wants to be the police chief.
