Pottstown Council Poised To Name Drumheller As New Police Chief

Editor’s note:  Would it have made more sense for Capt. Drumheller to take the Civil Service test before being offered the promotion?  I love how council forms a committee to find a new police chief and they do absolutely nothing.  The point of the committee was exactly what?  We all know how things work in Pottstown **wink, wink, nod, nod**  Thank you Evan for your candor in reporting this process.

POTTSTOWN — Police Capt. Richard Drumheller is now one step closer to being Police Chief Richard Drumheller.

If approved by a borough council vote Monday night, Drumheller will replace Borough Manager Mark Flanders, whose retirement as police chief becomes official April 14.

Since he was appointed Nov. 13 as borough manager, Flanders has held both positions, although drawing only one salary.

For the most part, Drumheller has been running the department since then.
