LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WHAS11) -- The West Buechel council voted not to approve the mayor’s police chief appointment in a special meeting on Thursday, May 1.

The West Buechel Mayor Sharon Fowler appointed the interim chief but council members said she did it illegally behind their back.

Current Chief Jeffrey Manning is retiring on Friday, May 2, and if city leaders don't at least appoint an interim chief they'll be forced to send all the officers home.

A new recommendation will come on Friday.
