In late July, Evansville Mayor Lloyd Winnecke asked former EMA Director Sherman Greer to resign for violating city policy. A week later, he asked Interim Director Adam Groupe to resign as well.
Since then, Batallion Fire Chief Cliff Weaver and Police Captain Andy Chandler have served as interim EMA directors.
"Obviously, I was glad to step up and help," said Captain Chandler. "I certainly am anxious to get back to my full time EPD duties. That's where my knowledge base is, and where my passion and my desire really lies. But I am really glad to be working at the EMA however I can be."
Captain Chandler says the police department has truly been accommodating since he's now splitting his time between EPD and EMA.
As far as a permanent director is concerned, city officials say the search continues.
