The citizens of Toledo will soon witness a changing of the guard in a couple of high ranking city positions – Chief of Police and Public Works Director. Chief of Police David Enyeart will be retiring at the end of June after 20 years of service in the Toledo PD. He worked his way up to the Chief’s desk as well as becoming a General in the Oregon National Guard and spent time commanding and directing troops in South Korea. Then he came home and directed his police troops in Toledo. Chief Enyeart will soon retire to the picturesque city of Prineville, just east of Bend. Chief Enyeart’s replacement (if there ever could be such a thing) will be announced by City Manager Craig Martin very shortly.
Besides the departure of Chief Enyeart, Toledo Public Works Director Michael Adams will be leaving the city as well to resume his career in the private sector. City Manager Martin credits Adams with being very active and successful in getting Toledo’s infrastructure improvement plans underway, especially the sewer system improvements required by the Oregon Department of Environmental Quality. Mr. Adams last day in the city public works department is Thursday, June 13th. Mr. Martin says successors to Chief of Police and Fire Chief will be announced at the Wednesday Toledo City Council meeting. Both chiefs will officially assume their new duties July 1st.
