RICEVILLE, Iowa (AP) — A northern Iowa police chief has been placed on paid leave pending a city investigation.

The Riceville City Council took the action last week on Chief Kim Orth.

Mayor Dean Eastman won't discuss the reasons for the investigation because it is a personnel matter. He says the Mitchell County and Howard County sheriff's departments will handle Riceville law enforcement coverage in the meantime.

A Riceville phone listed for a Kimberly Orth rang unanswered on Wednesday.
