Olean Mayor Nominates Chief Candidate

Olean may have a new police chief, two months after the former chief retired.

Mayor Bill Aiello has nominated Captain Jeff Rowley to replace Terry Schnell who stepped down on July 12. Common Council will vote on the nomination during its September 23 meeting.

Rowley, who is a 24-year veteran of the department, would take over day-to-day operations if council votes him in, but he would still have to take, and pass, the Civil Service promotional exam.
