Police Officer Nate Siem to Sergeant at the council meeting Monday, March 18.

“Nate has shown a career long dedication to self-improvement, and a willingness to share
his knowledge and abilities with his coworkers to help them become better cops,” said
Police Chief Gary Rutherford. “And that may be the one trait I value the most when looking
for new additions to our leadership team.”

“I couldn’t be more proud of him and more excited to be making this promotion,” said Rutherford.
