LA JOYA – The La Joya police chief said he was let go without a reason earlier this week.

Ramon Gonzalez told CHANNEL 5 NEWS he received a letter when he went to work on Monday. He said it notified him his services were no longer needed.

La Joya city manager Mike Alaniz said the administration, with council approval, decided the city wanted to take a different approach and seek a new police chief.

When asked several times when the decision to let Gonzalez go was made, Alaniz said he couldn’t recall.

Two sergeants will be taking over the police chief’s responsibilities until someone new is appointed after the holiday.
