CAMERON, Texas (KWTX) The City of Cameron remains without a chief of police after a man accepts, then declines the position.

Per the recommendation of City Manager Rhett Parker, during a special meeting on May 8, the city council decided to hire Waylon Rhodes to takeover as police chief.

Parker said Rhodes had accepted the position and was supposed to begin a couple of weeks later.

However, Rhodes, the current Chief of Silsbee, Texas, did not end up taking the job.

It's unclear why.

The position is listed as open on the city's website.

In February, the council voted unanimously to terminate Chief Randy Dixon without explanation.

Dixon had been Cameron's Chief since 2011.
