The Anson City Council is debating the future of the city’s police chief.

City manager Sonny Campbell told KTXS that “an inappropriate phone text, and Facebook message, was sent to some employees, that resulted in a complaint being filed against” Police Chief David Moore.

One of the last items on Monday night’s agenda read “discuss and take action on deliberation on the employment, evaluation, reassignment, duties, discipline, or dismissal of an employee, namely the Chief of Police.”

The council could adjourn into executive session for that discussion.

The meeting starts at 6 p.m.
