After being placed on paid administrative leave, Palmview Police Chief Chris Barrera has now been let go by the city.

Barrera's attorney says he received a text from the city attorney on Monday evening notifying him of the decision.

This comes after the interim city manager wrote a memo addressing problems with the police department.

Barrera says he and his attorney will be meeting on Tuesday to see what the next step is.
