Two days after St. Elmo Mayor Larry Tish locked horns with Police Chief Ken Thomason at a city council meeting, Tish fired the police chief.
Tish presented Thomason with a letter on Wednesday in which he stated that Thomason's termination was effective immediately.
As for any explanation of the termination, Tish stated in the letter only that, "It is my opinion that the interests of the municipality demand your removal as chief of police."
