Jim Winder addressed the Moab City Council on Tuesday, June 13, shortly before the council voted unanimously to confirm Mayor Dave Sakrison’s appointment of Winder as the city’s next police chief.

The council also authorized Moab City Manager David Everitt to negotiate and finalize a contract with Winder that provides for a base salary not to exceed $150,000 per year.

Winder, who currently serves as Salt Lake County’s sheriff, is expected to start his new job in Moab in early July.
