Payson officer terminated last week for unknown reasons

A Payson police officer was fired last week for unknown reasons. The town of Payson will not release the investigative report or termination letter regarding officer Mark Hillegas’ Dec. 15 firing until an appeal period ends. Hillegas has until later this month to file an appeal with the town. As of press time, Hillegas had not appealed the firing, said Police Chief Don Engler. Payson Mayor Kenny Evans said he could not disclose what Hillegas had done, but “as mayor, I understand that the termination was not for any on-the-job conduct or misconduct.”
