New E.D. Police Chief

There’s a new man in charge of the East Dubuque police department. Monday night, the city council voted to hire Luke Kovacic. Kovacic joined the police department in 2009 as a part-time patrol officer, before being advanced to full-time two years later. He is also a detective in the department. Kovacic replaces Steve O’Connell, who retired earlier this year. Sgt. Mickey Huseman served as interim police chief while a replacement for O’Connell was sought. Kovacic will be paid an annual salary of $65,000. That includes a $5,000 stipend. A total of 80 applicants applied for the job.
