NEWTON FALLS, Ohio - Newton Falls city council decided unanimously on Monday to take disciplinary action against Police Chief John Kuivila.

Council directed the city manager and law director to determine which steps are necessary for disciplinary action, up to and including termination of the chief's contract.
