SHEPHERDSVILLE - Mayor Scott Ellis made it official, firing Shepherdsville Police Chief Doug Puckett.
Ellis initially suspended Puckett in early January after taking office.
The reason given by Ellis for the suspension involved an investigation into Puckett campaigning for another mayoral cadidate during the 2010 election while in his SPD uniform.
Dan Patchin was named interim chief.
