The Knox Board of Public Works members approved a conditional offer of employment to a candidate for a position on the Knox City Police Department.
The board members interviewed three candidates: Jacob Berger from Plymouth, Eric Vanderhoff from Rochester and Eric Christianson from Wisconsin. After careful selection, the board unanimously chose Eric Vanderhoff for the conditional offer of employment.
Todd Keen recently resigned from the Knox City Police Department and a Vanderhoff is expected to be his replacement. He will need to be PERF approved and to attend the police academy before employment can start.
