Disciplinary hearing for Port Edwards chief postponed

Remaining Ad Time Ad - 00:00

PORT EDWARDS (WAOW) — The disciplinary hearing for Port Edwards Police Chief Jennifer Iverson was supposed to give the community closure.

However, just hours before the start of the meeting the Port Edwards Police and Fire Commission made the decision to postpone it.

“The reason that all this came a little late is because we got some additional information today that there is a possibility of a resolution without an evident hearing taking place,” said Nicholas Abts, the Village of Port Edward’s attorney.

Thursday night’s disciplinary hearing was supposed to address formal charges filed against Iverson.

“I came to see the police chief get fired,” said Scott Noble, a Port Edwards resident.

Village officials, as well as police and fire commission, still held a closed session.

“This is I believe the third location and third time it has been posted,” said Noble.”It is an obvious attempt to try and get the public away from it,” said Noble

Many residents like Noble said they are frustrated that officials have not come to a conclusion on this matter.

“She’s got a very corrupt history she should have never been hired. She falsified documents and she hired her boyfriend that had a record and attacked a correctional inmate,” Noble said. “The public wants her gone.”

News 9 made several attempts to call Iverson and her attorney but our calls went unanswered.

The Police and Fire Commission President said it is still unclear when a rescheduled hearing will take place.
