City hires dept. heads from within - Nichols, Hardin earn posts as police chief, city clerk

February 5, 2014

Starkville’s Board of Aldermen hired both a new police chief and city clerk during its regular meeting Tuesday at City Hall.

Aldermen voted 6-1 to hire Starkville Police Department Capt. Frank Nichols as police chief, following close to 90 minutes of candidate interviews Tuesday evening, with Ward 3 Aldermen David Little opposing the hire. The board voted unanimously to hire Chief Deputy City Clerk Lesa Hardin to fill the vacant city clerk position.

The board set Nichols’ annual salary at $73,500 and Hardin’s at $58,000. Both are subject to a 6-month probation period.
