Hightower Working as Both Police Officer and City Councilman After All

Marion City Councilman Angelo Hightower is once again a part of the police force after taking a part-time position with the Carterville Police Department. Hightower, who was brought on by the Carterville PD in August, was a Marion Police Officer prior to being elected to the city council earlier this year, but the county determined that he could not continue with the department while being a councilman. Hightower will work both jobs, but his duties as an officer will not conflict with his city council obligations.
