City paying two police chief salaries

Since January, Fairhope has paid two men for one police chief job.

On Jan. 22, Interim Police Chief Terry Sanders was hired at the same salary that then-Chief Mike Comalander received of: $83,336 per year.

Although Comalander stepped down to captain at that time, his salary never changed, according to Councilman Lonnie Mixon.

“Yes, that’s my understanding,” Mixon said Thursday. “I’ve put the issue on the Monday council agenda so we can get this taken care of once and for all.”
