Police Veteran Becomes E-Town's Chief

Elizabethtown City Council on Monday chose a successor to replace outgoing Police Chief Ruben Gardner less than a week before he retires after 40 years as a lawman. The council Monday voted 5-1 to appoint former Louisville Metro Police Department Assistant Chief Tracy Schiller to step into Gardner’s shoes — the first change in the department’s top seat in 20 years.
