Gardner may have a new police chief come July.

City administrator Cheryl Harrison-Lee said the search for a new police chief is winding down, and she hopes to recommend a candidate for the job during the June 17 city council meeting.

The new chief will replace Ken Francis, who died last August. He served in the role for 25 years.
