FORT MYERS, Fla. -- There's still no word on a decision regarding the next Fort Myers police chief.

The city manager is now choosing among eight candidates, including interim chief Dennis Eads. This, after a search committee revealed its recommendations.

Late last week, the city manager said he was waiting on the final round of background checks before making a selection.

Friday, Fox 4 reached out the city to see where things stand.  We haven't heard back, but you can count on Four in Your Corner to keep you updated.
