SUNRIVER, OR -- The future status of Sunriver Police Chief Marc Mills remains unknown. The Sunriver Service District launched an administrative investigation into accusations that he struck a Sergeant while both were on duty in early December. The Deschutes County District Attorney has charged Mills with harassment, following a criminal investigation.
The Service District met Monday and agreed to interview Mills as part of the administrative investigation, then negotiate with him and legal counsel, regarding his employment status. That stage isn't yet scheduled, but Board Administrator Debbie Baker tells KBND News the District hopes to have the issues resolved as soon as possible.
Chief Mills remains on administrative leave.
