Caseyville Police Chief Jose Alvarez and Mayor Len Black went at it Feb. 19 during the Village Board meeting, shouting over operation of the department, making local hires and whether talk radio personality Bob Romanik really runs the police department. At one point a police sergeant and several others separated Alvarez from the mayor.
