The embattled Boulder City police chief has been fired on his first day back after several weeks of family leave.
City Manager David Fraser issued a two-sentence statement Monday confirming that Tom Finn’s employment with the city was terminated.
Finn says he was offered a chance to resign, but refused.
He says his work in Boulder City isn’t quite finished.
Finn’s 59, and the former police chief of East Brunswick, N.J.
He moved to Boulder City when he was hired in March 2006.
He’s been at odds with some city residents, officials and members of the 32-member police department since last year.
Finn was criticized for the way the department handled a Mongols Motorcycle Club meeting last June. And in November, the Boulder City Police Protective Union voted no confidence.
