NLPD interim police chief is also city’s 2012 employee of the year
NORTH LIBERTY– In December, the City of North Liberty named police lieutenant Diane Venenga as its 2012 employee of the year. Venenga was cited as, “a solid role model for every officer,” in the city’s press release. Mayor Tom Salm and city administrator Ryan Heiar made the selection, which was open to all city employees.
Since then, Lt. Venenga has been named interim police chief in the wake of chief Jim Warkentin’s resignation earlier this year.
