A longtime Logan city police officer and former chief has resigned to take a job in the private sector. The Logan Police Department is looking to fill a vacancy on its roster as long-serving officer and former police chief David Adkins has resigned to take a better-paying job in the private sector. Logan Police Chief E.K. Harper told the city council his department is a man short at the January meeting. Harper said Adkins, who was most recently serving as the schools interface officer, had resigned to take a job working for a mining company. I have three names left on the Civil Service testing list, Harper said, referring to the list of applicants which was put together the last time the Logan PD was hiring. However, I have heard that one of them may have already gone to the state police, so it is possible that we may have to have more testing. Chief Harper said his newest hire, Jacob Miller, is currently at the West Virginia State Police Academy and seems to be doing well. In other City of Logan news: Mayor Nolletti praised City Building Code Enforcement Officer Ray Perry for a solid ISO rating for the new agency. Nolletti said the work Perry had done should save residents of Logan a lot of money on their insurance premiums. Perry explained that the citys newest agency got an ISO rating of 5 right off the bat, which is very good considering only five other municipalities in the state have a lower listing. Logan Fire Chief Scotty Beckett said that most cities start off with a rating of 10 and have to work very hard to get the rating down to 5, which means residents premiums could decrease as the rating falls lower. Our residents should get a break on their insurance premiums, so you did a great job, Ray, and we are proud of you, said Mayor Nolletti. Bills totally $89,000 were approved for payment. Logan City Accountant Jeff Valet said the check registry was similar this month to the last, except for a payment to a bank in Mount Hope for the street departments new garbage truck. The truck has not arrived yet, but the monthly payment bills for it have, Valet said. The purchase should not make much difference on city finances as the city had just paid off another vehicle and the funds set aside for that will now be transferred to pay for the garbage truck. Nolletti said the citys bill to Waste Management Inc. for tipping fees was $18,000 in December.
