There will be a reception Friday afternoon to honor retiring Elkton Police Chief Bruce Marklin.
City Clerk Laura Brock says everyone is invited to attend and thank Chief Marklin for his 25 years of service to Elkton.
Ms. Brock says there will be refreshments and she knows it will be well-attended.
Retired Kentucky State Police Detective Jerry Pepper was hired as Marklin's replacement and he is already on the job. Marklin spent time as a Todd County sheriff's deputy and with the state park system before coming to the Elkton department. His last official day of employment is Aug. 30.
