When Sheriff Frank Beminio announced his retirement at the end of this month, it left Belmond Mayor Alan Mattison with the problem of trying to find someone to replace him. Tonight, at the Belmond City Council meeting, Mattison intends to nominate Rick McDaniel as the new Police Chief. McDaniel has been with the Belmond Police Department since April 2013. He has an extensive police background prior to that having worked 18 years in the Eagle Grove Police Department.
McDaniels nomination will be forwarded by Mattison at the Belmond City Council meeting beginning at 7pm in the Belmond City Hall.
