HUXLEY - After 36 years at the Huxley Police Department, Police Chief Nels Nord is ready for a new challenge. HUXLEY - After 36 years at the Huxley Police Department, Police Chief Nels Nord is ready for a new challenge.Nord, who served 25 years as Huxley's police chief, is retiring Wednesday, Dec. 31.And at the beginning of the new year he'll go to work as Huxley's mayor.Nord, who won the mayoral election against Mayor Dan Gonnerman in November, said he knew he wanted to retire from the police force but could not retire completely. "I didn't want to just quit and do nothing," he said."I've been in public service for this long, and I always knew in the back of my mind that I'd like to continue in public service after I retire."Nord said after his retirement he can contribute more time and accessibility to residents and the concerns people might have. Having been born and raised in Huxley, Nord has watched the size of the town grow steadily over the past 30 years - along with it problems. "As a city grows, more problems arise," he said."When I was younger I never would have thought there'd be so many problems - things I never would have thought would be a problem in Huxley."His duty as police chief gave Nord the experience of dealing with situations around town"People know that I'm approachable, and I think they have confidence in my judgment," he said."I think people will come to me since I've been here a long time and they feel they can talk to me, so they will voice their concerns."Nord's main concern while Huxley continues to grow is to make sure the city still can provide adequate services to the public.With expanding housing developments and the industrial park, Nord said he wants to make sure issues will be addressed and taken care of."Mayor Luiken once said that people are customers and just like a business we're going to treat them like customers," he said.Nord said he is confident Pote will do a good job as the new chief.Nord said his retirement also will allow him more time to pursue his hobbies. "I'll golf more and attend more Hawkeye football games," he said.
