At-Large Commissioner Lucas Allen’s outbursts and expletive-laden threats lodged at Mayor Tom Lowry during Tuesday’s Three Rivers City Commission meeting were allegedly a continuation of erratic behavior Allen displayed over the weekend.
Three Rivers City Commissioners approved a $32,100 Rural Violent Crime Reduction Initiative (RVCRI) grant last week to install six Flock Security cameras in the city for a two-year period.
Lucas Allen, the lone candidate on November’s ballot vying for the Three Rivers At-Large commission seat long held by Commissioner Daryl Griffith, was escorted out of Tuesday’s commission meeting by Police Chief Scott Boling at the behest of Mayor Tom Lowry.
A body discovered last Monday afternoon in a wooded area off Second Avenue in Three Rivers has been identified as David Michael Abrams.
Scott Boling was officially named the Three Rivers Police Department’s chief of police following a 5-1 confirmation vote by the Three Rivers City Commission Tuesday.
City Manager Joe Bippus announced Friday that Ronald “Scott” Boling will be the next Three Rivers Police Chief, succeeding longtime Police Chief Tom Bringman who retired in November. Boling most recently served as police chief of the Schoolcraft Police Department where Bippus has previously been employed as a patrol officer in addition to his duties as city manager. It is unclear whether Bippus still serves in any capacity with the Schoolcraft PD.
