Scottville Mayor Richard Maki read a statement apologizing to the public for the behavior of the commission at Monday’s city commission meeting.

“I would like to apologize for the disrespect shown in recent city commission meetings towards the city commission, the city manager, the city attorney and especially the chief of police and his officers and the community as a whole.”

This is directly referring to disbanding the police department, which has been a hot button topic. No longer says Maki “the business of the city police department was decided two years ago and our citizens are happy about it so we are not going to continue to discuss this.”
