Winnebago City Council may have had its hands full in filling vacancies. 

Tripleanews.com has learned that Police Chief Eric Olson was one of four finalists for the chief post of the Morris Police Department.

Olson and three other candidates were interviewed in early March, however, he did not get the job.

The Morris City Council selected someone at their March 12 meeting who had been serving as interim chief since late January.

Olson has been police chief in Winnebago for nearly five years and is currently sharing some of the administrative duties until a city administrator is hired.

The council has yet to begin the process to replace Chris Ziegler, who resigned effective Feb. 22.

During their March meeting, council members decided to seek the help of South Central Service Cooperative in the search for a new administrator.
