Springfield has a new police chief but not without a last minute hiccup.

Tuesday night, the city council went into executive session to discuss some unspecified accusations made against interim chief Kenny Winslow.  Houston says the council is satisfied with the answers given.

“There apparently was something on Springfield Leaks.  There were some e-mails going back and forth between members of the council, not everyone, but as it turned out, the questions were answered” says Houston.

Winslow was confirmed by a unanimous vote.  Houston says he will not comment further on the accusations other than to say they are baseless.
