Tell City Police Chief David Faulkenberg receives a standing ovation during Monday's meeting of the city's board of public works and safety after formally announcing his plans to retire at the end of the month. Faulkenberg served 31 years with the city's police force and has been chief for the past decade. Behind him are Sewage Department Superintendent Bruce Badger; mayoral assistant Hazel Davis, Fire Chief and city patrolman Greg Linne and City Councilman Tony Hollinden. Law enforcement has been "my life's calling," Faulkenberg said during a few minutes of reminiscing about his job. "I will miss those I work with and I want to impress upon this board the high dedication and skill of those members of your police department. Treat them well. They are out there working for you." Faulkenberg begins work March 3 as director of community service at Perry Circuit Court.
