The Morris City Council honored John Severson who retired as Police Chief on Monday morning. 

During the city council meeting, former Mayor Dick Kopczick shared his thoughts.

Severson had these parting words.

Severson was hired full-time at the Morris Police Department in 1995 and was part-time for four years prior to that.

Severson was appointed Morris Police Chief in October of 2016 and replaced Brent Dite, who retired. 

Severson was not reappointed by Morris Mayor Chris Brown.
