Elkhorn City is getting a new police chief.
Former Chief Anthony Maggard resigned last week after getting a job in Coal Run Village.
City officials hired Adam Swindall from Jenkins as the new police chief.
Officials say there are rumors that Maggard was fired from his position, and they say those rumors are absolutely not true.
"There are no hard feelings toward my chief. I like for people to better themselves. He's going to make more money, and it doesn't bother me," said Elkhorn City Mayor Mike Taylor.
Swindall will take over as chief this later week.
