New Hampton, Iowa – The New Hampton City Council denied a request for the city’s police chief to have paid vacation in his first year.
Last week the New Hampton City Council denied a request from Mayor Deb Larsen to grant police chief Zach Nosbisch two weeks of paid vacation during his first year of work.
The city follows the union contracts for department heads with the city. Larsen said most of the department heads have been promoted within and already have vacation time. Nosbisch, on the other hand, worked at the Chickasaw County Sheriff’s Office.
