Newport Beach City Manager Homer Bludau will announce the city’s new interim police chief today. Police Chief John Klein announced last month that he would retire Friday after months of complaints from top union leaders about the way the department promotes officers, including Klein. Some argued Klein unfairly leapfrogged more qualified candidates for top cop when he was hired in June 2007 because of a good-old-boy network in City Hall. Bludau has said he thought Klein’s ascension would improve morale because he was promoted from within the ranks.

On Tuesday the Costa Mesa City Council is expected to vote to allow interim fire and police chiefs to stay on the job longer. Although the new police chief is due to start early in the new year, it's still not clear when a permanent fire chief will be in place. For interim Police Chief Steve Staveley, the extra time will last just a few weeks. It will allow him to help new Chief Christopher Shawkey, still police commander in Phoenix, get oriented to his new department in time for his swearing-in on Jan. 2. For interim Fire Chief Steven Parker, though state law would have only let him stay till spring, the uncertain medical condition of absent chief Jim Ellis means the wait could be far longer.
