There's a push underway in Wauseon to hire a
new fire chief.
The last chief retired about three months
ago, and the city has had a part-time interim chief since, but some want the
next chief to be a full-time employee.
City leaders said being a fire chief is a lot
of work. In addition to being on the road, they're responsible for
administrative duties and applying for grants for the department.
Council member Heather Kost said the duties
of the position are too much for part-time. She said the city has a great fire
department, and wants to make sure everyone working for it has the resources
and ability to keep it that way.
Kost also said the mayor does have plans to
make the position full-time again, they're just not sure when.
