For the second time this year, the village of Smithville has fired its chief of police. At a meeting on Friday night, village council unanimously voted to terminate Kevin English. This comes on the heels of Jen Barnett being fired back in March. The village says the reason English was fired won’t be discussed publicly. Until a new chief can be hired, Sgt. Robert Hartman will handle the position’s day-to-day duties, although he won’t be given the title of interim chief.
