A Detroit City Council committee is expected to discuss where Mayor Dave Bing stands in appointing a new police chief.

The status of the search to replace ex-chief Ralph Godbee is scheduled to come up Monday morning before the council's Public Health and Safety Standing Committee.

The council was awaiting a report from Bing's office.

Godbee was promoted to chief in 2010, but stepped down in October after details surfaced of a sexual relationship with a subordinate. Bing promoted Chester Logan to chief on an interim basis.

The Board of Police Commissioners selected firms to conduct a search for a new chief, but no money was immediately available in November from the city to move forward.
