Widespread rumors that Clare Police Chief Dwayne Miedzianowski will be the new Clare County Undersheriff are not true, at least not yet, said Clare City Manager Ken Hibl.

Hibl said Wednesday that the Chief had notified him that he “has had an offer, but he hasn’t made a decision yet.”

That was verified by Clare County Sheriff John Wilson Wednesday. He said Miedzianowski had been offered the job but hadn’t given him an answer yet. “He is one of four possible candidates,” Wilson said. “And he would be a great asset to this department.” Wilson didn’t release the names of the other three he has been considering for the position.

Miedzianowski did not return phone calls from this reporter to confirm whether he is considering the position.

Lt. Ed Williams has been serving at the Interim Undersheriff since last April when former Undersheriff Rick Miller retired.
