That was new QPD Chief Adam Yates being sworn in before Monday night's meeting at City Hall. Yates was recently named the city's 33rd Chief after the first candidate selected by the Board of Fire and Police Commissioners, Johnathan Lewin of Chicago, withdrew from consideration in May. Yates has been interim Chief since then, and was one of three finalists for the job. After the meeting, Chief Yates summed up the hiring process for the job.

The Council voted to table for two weeks, a resolution to spend $500,000 to hire Klingner and Associates for construction inspection and engineering services. The firm would help the city finish several road construction projects. The matter was on the agenda after some confusion over a vote taken on the resolution last week.
