That smoke you see downtown ...

Follow me here ...

The next big City of Akron fire is waiting to be lit .. and it involves Police Chief Michael Matulavich. I don't mean "fire" as in something that he's burning or doing wrong but rather, his contract ends at the end of the year ... and nothing's been made public yet as to what will happen when the ball drops at midnight.

City Council President Marco Sommerville said many months ago that he wanted Matulavich replaced, but Mayor Plusquellic said he was honoring the Chief's contract and would deal at the end of the year.

It's now Dec. 3rd ... and the end of the year is fast approaching.

Matulavich might be asked to stay on for a period of time .. or maybe another deal is pending. The issue is certainly on Mayor Plusquellic's radar with four weeks until New Year's.

Just know this ... with (former Chief) Larry Givens holding the fort as Deputy Mayor for Public Safety (specifically managing the police) and the Sheriff's Office and APD working together to develop more cohesion, don't be surprised if APD is officially "chief-less" on January 1.

Who really cares what Marco wants? He should be in prison doing time for terrorism charges for trying to convey a weapon into an Airport.
