After plenty of impassioned — and sometimes heated — debate during their Tuesday meeting, the Big Spring City Council once again voted against raising the garbage collection fees for local residents and businesses.

Williams has been serving as interim chief of the department since Lonnie Smith's resignation earlier this year.

He and fellow BSPD lieutenants Lance Telchik and Robert Fitzgibbons were the three finalists for the position, Darden said.
