The City of Stinnett is facing new changes.
At last weekâ€™s city council meeting, Police Chief Marie Farbro was released from duty during an open session. She was released for â€śwork performance issues.â€ť
Farbro has been part of the Stinnett Police since 2007 and police chief for almost two years. City Manager Mark Anderson has stepped up to fill this position until a new chief has been found.
Another change the city has seen is the resignation of Matt Daffer, Public Works Director. Daffer was Public Works Director for a year.
