The city of Ypsilanti is holding a public meeting next Tuesday at 7 p.m. to give the public an opportunity to voice their opinion on what they would like to see in their next police chief.

The meeting, to be held in council chambers, is designed to solicit comment about the police chief competency model and about competencies the public believes should be a priority.

Terry McGinn, a consultant from Career Directions, will be on hand to moderate the session.

According to a press release sent by city officials, the search process is designed to ensure that the public is aware of the process and has an opportunity to participate.

The city plans review public comment and suggestions at the Sept. 1 council meeting. City Manager Ed Koryzno has formed a search committee including several police chiefs in the region as well as city officials.

Residents can find the list of competencies and more detailed information by visiting the city's Web site.

If residents are unable to attend a public comment session, they are asked to submit their comments to April McGrath, director of administrative services, at amcgrath@cityofypsilanti.com.
