Auburn Police Chief Shawn Butler will be retiring after 25 years of service and was honored last Thursday in an at-times emotional ceremony at City Hall.
Present was Chief Gary Giannotta, who said he sensed in 1996 a young recruit that had some promise.
Councilor Jimmy Gianettino stated that despite not being a Democrat, he still formed a bond with the Chief.
City Manager Jeff Dygert will introduce the new chief at next week’s council meeting.
