February 20, 2008 IMLAY CITY — City Manager Amy Planck reached beyond the local area Friday to snare an individual she believes will be an outstanding police chief.
Planck named John Stano, a 25-year law enforcement veteran, to succeed police Chief Arlan Winslow who retires Feb. 27.
Currently a lieutenant on the Warren Police Department, Stano was among a group of three finalists for the position that included longtime Imlay City police Officer Roger Czap and Deputy Chief James Mynsberge of the Auburn Hills Police Department. A total of 28 individuals applied for the position.
Planck said Stano, 43, will assume his duties with the Imlay City department on March 3.
