Marshville police chief to retire

Marshville Police Chief Carl Webber has announced plans to retire as of April 30, Town Manager Amanda Reid confirmed Monday.

Weber has been chief since June 2011. He was hired as a patrol officer in 1987 and served in the department from 1987 until mid-2000 when he was appointed town administrator.

Webber held that post until April 2009 when he took a job in the Union County sheriff’s office, and worked there until taking the chief’s job.

The department has seven full-time employees in addition to the chief, and five reserve officers.

The town now needs to find a replacement for Webber.
