City council members acted on a full slate of police business on Monday evening.
First on the agenda was the acceptance of Officer Logan Martin who resigned. His wife has accepted a teaching position out of the area.

The Conrad School Board chose three finalists to interview for the position of Superintendent during a screening of applicants Friday afternoon. The three finalists were selected from ten applications received for the position.
We were happy with the quality of the applicants and are very excited about the chance to look more closely at the three finalists during the interview process. The Board took a lot of time reviewing all of the applications and selected a group of finalists that have various experiences as administrators and teachers. They each appear to fit many of the skill sets needed to effectively lead our district.
The three finalists selected are Dave Selvig of Scobey, Craig Barringer of Conrad and Larry Markuson of Hot Springs.
