CLARKSTOWN - The Clarkstown Town Board unanimously voted to suspend its police chief on Thursday.

Officials initially issued a statement alleging misconduct against suspended Clarkstown Chief Michael Sullivan, but later said it was a “personnel matter."

While the exact disciplinary charges against Sullivan have not yet been made public, his alliance to former Supervisor Alex Gromack is being raised. Some say the move is politically motivated by the new administration led by George Hoehmann.

Sullivan has been with the department for decades and spent the last five years as chief.

Sullivan will continue to be paid until disciplinary charges have been filed.

Capt. Robert Mahon has been named acting police chief.
